History of the Route
Alaska Airlines operates the short 30 mile hop from Wrangell to Petersburg in a 737. It is indeed Alaska’s shortest flight, and is a part of their short “Hop” flights in which they perform short flights between small Alaskan cities, such as Wrangell, that were previously hard to connect.
Overall, it helps civilians get between the two cities very easily.
