Island Airways' planes fly from Charlevoix to Welke Airport (6Y8), a privately owned public-access airport in Peaine Township; Fresh Air Aviation's plane flies from Charlevoix to the township-owned public airport (KSJX), on the west side of the island, also in Peaine Township.  Beaver Island Boat Company runs a scheduled auto ferry service from Charlevoix during most of the year.
