Flight Alaska (d/b/a Yute Air) is an American airline based in Bethel, Alaska, USA. It operates scheduled services to over 22 villages in Alaska and also provides charter services throughout Alaska. Its main base is Bethel Airport.


The airline began flying from Dillingham, Alaska in the mid-1950s as Bob Harris Flying Services. It was later renamed Yute Air Alaska. In 1999 Yute Air filed for bankruptcy and the company and operating certificate were acquired by the Flight International Group in April 2000 and shortly thereafter renamed "Flight Alaska". Under the Flight Alaska name, it operated with a multitude of aircraft in addition to the original Cessna 207 aircraft, including a Lear 35, King Air 200, and four CASA 212-200's. Operations were expanded to include bypass mail, scheduled passenger and freight service, lodge and private charters, and government smokejumping contracts. It was then acquired by Tim Vottis, in 2004. The airline was downsized to only hub out of Bethel, AK and only serve the surrounding area. The name reverted to Yute Air.


Yute Air operates services to the following domestic scheduled destinations (at June 2012): Bethel, Chefornak, Eek, Goodnews Bay, Kipnuk, Kongiganak, Kwigillingok, Newtok, Nightmute, Platinum, Quinhagak, Toksook Bay, Tuntutuliak and Tununak, Atmautluak, Nunapitchuk, Kasigluk, Kwethluk, Akiachak, Akiak, Tuluksak, Kalskag and others.
