Well it has to be the northernmost point in the USA that you can fly to as there is no land that belongs to the United States farther north than Barrow, Alaska. Prudhoe Bay/Deadhorse (SCC) also has flights, but it is a bit south, yet still on the arctic ocean. And in any case, every community in alaska pretty much has air service
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

Longyearbyen (LYR) has daily sheduled flights by SK to TOS as well as seasonal flights to OSL. There are also irregular charter flights to Moscow for the russian Trust-Arktikugol mining company, and charters to Ny Ålesund further north on Spitzbergen. As mentioned LYR is at 78 degrees north. This actually posed a problem for BU when they introduced the 734 back in the late 80s, as the navigation software had to be modified. AFAIK, LYR is the northernmost airfield with scheduled service.
