Fly to Alaska with all new routes

Alaska is on track to become a more frequented destination in 2013. The US state will be easier to reach thanks to new routes opening up for holidaymakers.

Those wishing to visit 'The Great Land' will be able to take advantage of new cruise options and additional airline routes launching this year. The director of the Alaskan Division of Economic Development, Lorene Palmer, stated the improved travel will make Alaska "more attractive than ever.” Palmer said this was thanks to, “the wide variety of large and small ship options, new domestic and international air services, and a host of new tours and attractions.”

Sean Parnell, Governor of Alaska described Alaska's varied tourist experience on the Alaska tourism website, “Alaska is different from every other destination in the world. Every day offers an unforgettable memory: a mother moose and calf, glaciers and mountains, unique Native cultures, our Russian legacy and Gold Rush days...”

Separate from the main body of the united States, Alaska is found on the north-western tip of the Americas, bordering Canada and the Arctic and pacific ocean. As well as the scenic views that Alaska is famed for, such as Mount McKinley, the highest peak in the USA, visitors can also plan trips to coincide with one of the varied annual events that the state hosts.

Every January Alaska is home to a folk festival in its capital city, Anchorage, and throughout the year it hosts the world's longest snowmobile race, the World Ice Art Championships, and also witnesses the spectacular grey whale migration in springtime. 2013 will see 19 extra cruise trips added to the Alaskan schedule, while it's reported several new domestic and international airline routes (such as a new nonstop flight between Chicago and Fairbanks launching in June 2013) will also be brought into operation.
