Another island airport

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. :)
