    Default Anchorage to Soldotna

    What would be the best way to get from Anchorage to Soldotan in June? We are flying in to Anchorage, and a friend has a car in Soldotna that we can use, but have to get there first. Are there any bus/trains/other forms of transportation to/from there? The initial plan was to rent a car for the week that we are there, but now this opportunity came up for some $$saving.

    Only one I know of is http://www.stagelineinhomer.com/anchorage__homer But your best bet is probably just to fly down on either Grant aviation http://www.flygrant.com/ or ERA http://www.flyera.com/
    Its a 20 minute flight or 2 hour drive.

    Stupid question, (never been to Alaska before) but how far is the Kenai airport from Soldotna? Are there taxis there?

    There is a taxi service at Kenai Airport, about 20 minute taxi ride to Soldotna.

    Book in advance during tourist season. Fly Grant they are the best.
    I fly twice a month between Kenai and Anchorage. I refuse to fly Era.
    I was paying $24 for a cab to/from the airport to Soldotna a couple years ago.

    Can't really reply to the 'How busy are the flights from Anchorage to Kenai?' question directly, but I have seen that they have flights about every one to two hours between the two cities. Wife & I had thought about flying into Kenai, but never did because a friend of ours had a son stationed at Elmendorf so we took him and his wife out every year either on arrival or departure from Alaska.

    I do it quite often for work. Its not that busy, flights every hour **** near on Era Aviation or Grant Air. Its like $90 one way and its a 25 minute flight. Hope that helps.
