About Valdez Airport
The airport, now referred to as Valdez Pioneer Field in honor of Alaska’s pioneer aviators, is home to one terminal with their main flight being the one to and from Anchorage that runs about twice a day in both directions. However, plenty of air taxis and other aerial uses make up for a majority of their operations, which range up to thirty-five a day, according to records taken in 2008. The Port of Valdez is also close by.
Unlike huge terminals, this airport does not host any food accommodations or amenities. However, the airport is hoping to change this as there is office space available to rent within the terminal. Moreover, while it is capable of hosting huge flights with their one runway, fuel is not readily available to their flights and it has to be arranged prior. ERA Aviation (an Alaska Airlines partner) and Grant Aviation are the main providers of the daily service to and from Valdez Airport.
