Another island airport
By Craig Moen

Hong Kong International Airport is also on an island, with ferry
service to Macau and the mainland. Other airports around the
world also have ferry service, like Toronto, but also have bridges.
Oakland's airport is on an island, and they're thinking about
adding ferry service because the bridge traffic gets all jammed
up. And in San Diego there's a proposal to build an offshore
airport 10 miles off the coast and service it with high-speed
ferry. I'm guessing there are a lot of other examples of island
airports with ferry service connections.
Maybe the real problem is that Ketchikan is on the wrong island?!
Maybe we should relocate to Gravina?! We could also mandate
that there be no jewelry stores there. :)
About: "I love the ferry
and prefer it to some ugly bridge."
