The Ketchikan International Airport is located on a seperate island. Access to/from the airport is via a 5 minute ferry ride. This ferry carries both passengers and cars. Customers are responsible for all ferry fares. Current rates (2016) are $7.00 per car and $6.00 per passenger, each way. Alaska Car Rental can sell you passes (availablity not guarranteed) at time of rental, or you can pay cash at the ticket booth.
