Valdez Trip Planning

By car: Valdez is located at the end of the Richardson Highway almost equidistant from Fairbanks  (362 miles) and Anchorage (300 miles). Carpooling is encouraged.

By plane: Scheduled daily air service to Valdez is offered twice daily by Ravn Airlines. The flight is 45 minutes long.

Ravn is offering 10% off any published fares; valid between any Ravn Alaska or Ravn Connect location served and Valdez through Sept. 15. Use promotional code VDZAlliance10 at checkout.

Note: While it's possible, we do not recommend trying to fly into Valdez on the morning flights. Cold fall air and warm Prince William Sound water create fog that frequently leads to cancellations.
