PAYMENT: We do accept Visa and MasterCard, Discover, money orders, and cash of course, but no personal checks. Occasionally, second party check from state, federal, or tribal organizations will be accepted — but only with with prior approval.
CHECK-IN: To assist us in maintaining on-time service, passengers are required to check-in one hour before scheduled departure time. Flights close to passengers 30 minutes before departure. This means if you flight departs at 1:00 pm, at 12:30 pm we will NO LONGER BE ACCEPTING PASSENGERS for that flight, and you will have to reschedule. If you arrive at 12:28, you MAY be allowed to check in, but likely your bags will not. Seats for passenger that fail to check-in before cut-off may be released only to stand-by passengers at the counter, at that time. Once checked-in passengers must remain onsite, or return to the facility if they have left, for the 30-minute window after flight close out and before flight departure. You will be required to show valid state or federal I.D.
EXCESS BAGGAGE RATES: 40 lbs is the allowed baggage weight for all villages except Fort Yukon. Fort Yukon has an allowed baggage weight of 80 lbs —Flights 77, 600, and 260 only. All items are weighed and count toward the limit, including purses, laptops, backpacks and so on; there is no separate allowance for "carry-on" items as no carry-ons are allowed on our flights. Any items over the allowed baggage weight will be checked in as freight, and be subject to freight loads and delivery schedules.
SCHEDULE LIABILITY: Warbelow’s assumes no liability for delays in flights due to weather conditions. Schedule is subject to change without notice.
SMOKING & DRINKING: FAA regulations prohibit smoking on any flight. Warbelow’s does not allow alcoholic beverages or intoxicated persons on any flight.

WEAPONS: All weapons, including firearms and pepper spray, must be checked at the ticket counter.
WEATHER: Scheduled arrival and departure times for flights are generally accurate but cannot be guaranteed. Safety is our paramount concern and naturally, all flights are conducted weather permitting. If your flight is canceled due to weather, you will have the choice of accepting a full refund for the canceled flight, rescheduling on the next available flight. Incidental expenses incurred due to weather delays or cancellations are the full responsibility of the passenger. These include but are not limited to re-accommodation penalties from other airlines, meals, overnight accommodation expenses and passenger-arranged alternate transportation.
