The Alaskan Milk Run! (Leg 1) Seattle - Ketchikan

Welcome to my 7-day-series! These hops are a part of the infamous Alaskan Milk Run! It’s operated by Alaska airlines. Alaska airlines operated this flight since the 1930s, it was the only way to give these communities supplies.

Just casually descending over Prince Rupert

Gear down for a really windy approach at PAKT! Pushing 28kts!

A wheelie didn’t hurt anyone did it? Maybe the passengers on this flight

Please stay tuned for leg 2 Tomorrow! The flight between Ketchikan and Wrangell!


Amazing! I did the Milk Run a couple weeks back, ASA61.

Alaska Airlines Milk Run is definitely worth! Can’t wait to see more photos!


I’ve been planning to do the Alaska Milk Run for a while now but forgot about it! Thanks for sharing the beautiful screens.

Looks like a beautiful flight! great pics

i’m still asking myself why it’s called “milk” run

Because it’s taken frequently by people who live in these small cities or towns. They probably go like every week since roads there don’t connect to another city or a big city. Pretty much just a casual flight, just like going to the grocery store to get milk. Yea that was a pretty bad explanation but read this: The Milk Run is a hop, skip and a jump along Southeast Alaska’s coast – Alaska Airlines Blog
