Most of our guests fly to Anchorage and rent cars there. However, if you would like to fly to Kenai rather than drive the 3 hours from Anchorage, you have two good options… Grant Aviation, and Ravn Aviation. Both fly smaller prop driven planes with daily 25 minute flights to Kenai from Anchorage International Airport.
