We are vigilantly monitoring the situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure your safety during our ongoing and future operations. We have gotten the go-ahead from Gov. Dunleavy's office to start tours Thursday, May 14th under strict operational guidelines.
Gov. Mike Dunleavy is ending Alaska's 14-day quarantine for interstate travel. Instead, visitors and Alaskans returning to the state will be asked to take a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of boarding an Alaska-bound flight. The new policy goes into effect on June 5th.
Gov. Dunleavy has stated that travelers who can't produce proof that they've had a recent test and that the results were negative will be given the choice of taking a test at the terminal or beginning a 14-day quarantine. For more information please visit the Alaska State Department of Health website HERE.
We care deeply about your safety and that of our staff, so we would like to share some procedures and actions we’re taking to help keep everyone safe. We deep clean our aircraft daily, before the first flight each day. Between flights, we sanitize headsets, seatbelt buckles, door handles, and other areas our passengers may touch during their flight. We do require all passengers to wear a face-covering while in the helicopter and during flight. All passengers will be temperature screened and will be flying people from the same group only. Alaska Helicopter Tours will provide hand sanitizer on the aircraft and a handwashing station before and after the tour. Any guests displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will be unable to board the aircraft and will be issued a full refund.
Whether you’re at home or traveling, the WHO recommends practicing good hygiene to protect yourself against infection — by washing your hands frequently with soap or alcohol-based sanitizer, maintaining a distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing, and avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. If you become sick, please seek medical attention quickly.
If you display symptoms of COVID-19 you should not travel and we will be flexible in rescheduling your flight with us or issue a refund. In the meantime please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns; we are available 7 days a week to assist you.
