The fares. World edition.

The fares. The whole fares and nothing but the fares. Here’s a big fat list of the current low fares to top destinations to/fr Anchorage. Domestic and international.
Thanks to USTravel for assistance on this. Call them for details: (907)561-2434 or toll-free (800)544-2217.

All fares listed are roundtrip, including taxes and fees. Updated 10:20pm on Fri., Mar. 18, 2011. I’ve put the airport code in parentheses (ANC). For most of these fares, I used the dates Apr 12-26, 2011. DATES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. But I wanted to give a better picture of what the Spring fares look like. Summer is a different story altogether.

International flights

NOTE: These rates include all taxes and fees. International fares are more difficult to price. There are many more variables, including stage length of the flights, layovers (which always add additional costs in agony, meals, hotels, etc.). Also, there are some private distribution channels, which makes trying to find the fares more challenging. If you find some great deals  (like Condor‘s flights beginning in May from Anchorage to Frankfurt), let me know…I’ll post them!

Amsterdam (AMS)  $1,225 DL

Zurich: let’s wait and see what Edelweiss does. They start on May 30 ANC-ZRH–and still their fares are too expensive. Wait and see.

I make an aggressive attempt to update in a timely fashion, fares are nonetheless subject to change without notice. While compiling this list, some fares changed before my eyes. Fares change by date, by routing and by airline. The lowest fare, as you can imagine, is not always the best fare for you.   As usual, restrictions apply. Not all fares are available on all flights. Fares provided by US Travel‘s Anchorage office: (907)561-2434.

Do you have some cities you would like added to the list? Aniak? Allentown? Alice Springs? Just drop me a note–I’ll plug ’em in. I’ll update these next month as other airlines ramp up their schedules.

ALSO–IMPORTANT. I picked some dates that worked for me–but if you find some lower fares, please let me know and I’ll post ’em!
