Travel









Planes

Depending on the community and the flight, you may be on a plane which seats anywhere from 5 – 19 passengers. Planes may be single or twin-engine and some are turbine powered.

Baggage

Alaska Airlines, Bering Air, and Ravn Alaska allow you to check two pieces up to 50 pounds each. Anything above and beyond that is considered excess baggage and you will have to pay additional fees.

Delays/Cancelations

All our travel is weather permitting. Flights can be cancelled for a variety of reasons in any season: icing, fog, whiteout, mechanical, etc. Most returning staff leave themselves an extra day when traveling in or out just in case delays occur.

You always want to personally verify your flights to and from Nome, Unalakleet and the village.

Flight schedules change and it is your responsibility to keep track of this information.

Most of our staff soon begin flying with Alaska Airlines and their travel partners to build up miles. After signing up for the mileage plan the next step would to be join Club 49 for additional benefits for Alaskan Residents.
