Charters in Alaska or Contiguous USA?

If you are shipping a large volume of cargo, Charter Services from NAC may be your answer. Our Boeing 737-300 and Boeing 737-400 are available for charter services to our scheduled service locations, Alaskan communities that can accommodate a jet aircraft, and throughout the Contiguous USA.

Other Services

Consolidation Services
On Charters, Flagstops, and General Freight, NAC will accept freight from multiple vendors and organize it into one shipment. In conjunction with our General Service, this can help you prevent paying multiple minimum charges and ensures you are paying the lowest per-pound rate possible by having different vendors deliver freight to one destination in daily or weekly shipments.
Flag Stops

Rerouting of a scheduled flight to accommodate our customers needs can be accomplished with a Flag Stop. Flag Stops are ideal for freight volumes or products that are critical in nature, as well as partial loads where a full charter is not practical. Pricing varies by destination and volume. All Flag Stops must be scheduled in advance.

For a quote on a Flag Stop, please email a minimum of 72 hours prior.

Pick-up and Delivery Service
NAC Customer Service Agents can arrange local pick-up and delivery services in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Bethel, and some of our other hub destinations. Rates and availability vary by location. Our Anchorage, Bethel, and Fairbanks hubs work with a myriad of local trucking companies, and we can add their charges to your NAC air waybill. Ask our Customer Service Team for more information.
