 DUT Unalaska Airport Info & Guide

Where is Unalaska Airport?
Unalaska Airport (IATA: DUT, ICAO: PADU, FAA LID: DUT) is a public airport in the City of Unalaska, on Amaknak Island in the Aleutian Islands, off the coast of the U.S. state of Alaska. It is located 50 miles (80 km) from the Great Circle route to the Orient on the Bering Sea coast of Unalaska Island, 800 miles (1,300 km) southwest of Anchorage and 1,950 miles (3,140 km) from Seattle.

The official name of the City of Unalaska's port is Dutch Harbor. That name is also applied to the portion of Unalaska on Amaknak Island, which is located across a bridge from the rest of the city on Unalaska Island. Therefore the airport is sometimes referred to as Dutch Harbor Airport.

In 2002, the State of Alaska renamed it Tom Madsen Airport in honor of Charles Thomas Madsen Sr., a bush pilot who was killed in an airplane accident that year. However, the Federal Aviation Administration still refers to it as Unalaska Airport.

The airport's runway is bordered on one side by a steep drop off into the ocean and the side of a hill on the other. Both ends drop off into open water.

Scheduled commercial airline service is provided by PenAir, a code share partner of Alaska Airlines. At one point Alaska Airlines operated 737-200 Combi aircraft to the airport, but due to load restrictions (thanks to the airport's short runway) and cancellations due to weather they contracted operating the service to PenAir in 2004.
