Please keep in mind that these airports were chosen based on their air-distance from Dyea. You should check the map and see how accessible they are when considering one airport over another.

Footnotes ...

<1>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Dyea), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Dyea) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Dyea. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Dyea

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Dyea. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 59.5048, Longitude: -135.3608
