[Summer] Alaska Air – $360: Detroit – Anchorage, Alaska (and vice versa). Roundtrip, including all Taxes

This site is part of an affiliate sales network and receives compensation for sending traffic to partner sites, such as CreditCards.com. This compensation may impact how and where links appear on this site. This site does not include all financial companies or all available financial offers.

A good fare to and from Anchorage for peak summer travel. Use this fare to see the great outdoors.

The downside to this fare is that on both outbound and return flights will require 10+ hour layover in Seattle or Portland. However, they are not overnight layovers so no hotel stay is required. Use the layover to visit Seattle/Portland and have a lunch or dinner before your next flight.
