Lake & Peninsula Airlines

Flight Services


Have the plane all to yourself, take what you want, and go pretty much anywhere! LPA usually has storage available for items you plan to charter a plane for. Please contact us to arrange a drop off time.

Seat Fares

Each paying passenger is allowed up to 50 pounds of freight each leg of the flight.

Excess freight is billed per pound and must be paid for in advance.

Check-in for flights is one hour prior to take-off, but passengers may drop off their freight up to a day in advance.

We have a freight room to securely hold your freight in advance of your flight, with limited fridge and freezer space if you’re traveling with groceries.

Flight Tours

We can take you on scenic flight tours of many different locations across the state of Alaska. 

Some popular destinations out of Anchorage include Denali, the Chugach Mountains, the Turnagain Arm and Knik Arms of the Cook Inlet and the Matanuska-Susitna, Eklutna, Chickaloon and Knik glaciers.

Some popular destinations out of Port Alsworth include: Tanalian Mountain, Tanalian Falls, Lake Kontrashibuna, Lake Clark, Mt. Iliamna and the Tuxedni Glacier.

We can also take you on flights to view bears, caribou, whales and other native wildlife from the air. 

Contact us for current tour routes.


We haul a lot of cargo for companies and individuals. Common items include plywood & lumber, four-wheelers, animals (dead and alive), groceries, survey supplies, fire-fighting equipment, news crews, and oil drilling parts. Even boxes of rocks!

If it will fit into one of our planes we can probably get it where it needs to go.


Do you need groceries delivered? Building supplies? An oil rig drill part?
