Skagway, Alaska airport Because the Alaskan terrain is formidable and there are great distances between settlements, the major means of transportation is by air.  Bush pilots are used to transport settlers, medical help, and supplies into the interior.  Floatplanes abound.  Air taxis can be used for traveling to specific destinations.  Besides the large number of small airports and private airstrips used to access remote parts of the state that have no highways, major Alaska airports include the Anchorage International Airport, the Fairbanks International Airport, the Juneau International Airport, the Merrill Field in Anchorage, and the Valdez Pioneer Field.
