Flying to Vashon Island

There are two airports on Vashon Island for personal crafts, one public and one private strip. The public Vashon Municipal Airport is located on Cove Road approximately two miles from the main town intersection. Vashon Municipal Airport covers an area of 20 acres (8.1 ha) at an elevation of 316 feet (96 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway and one helipad, both with turf surfaces: 17/35 is 2,001 by 60 feet (610 m × 18 m) and H1 is 98 by 98 feet (30 m × 30 m). Commercial flights can be arranged by charter through Vashon Island Air (1-877-ISLE-AIR) for those who do not have a private craft. The two closest international airports are SeaTac International Airport (BFI / KBFI) just 15 miles in Seattle, WA, Kenmore Air Harbor Seaplane Base (LKE / W55) located 19 miles from Vashon in Seattle, WA, and the William R. Fairchild International Airport (CLM / KCLM) in Port Angeles, WA located 99 miles from the Island.

Getting from all three airports to Vashon Island is just a matter of getting to Vashon by car, bus, bicycle or even by Uber or Lyft.
