Nope. You can fly to Longyearbyen, several settlements in Greenland, and probably you can also fly to somewhere in Novaya Zemlya and some other places.

At the bus station, buses stop. At the train station, trains stop. At my desk, I have a work station.

What kind of service is available for all three?

Any thoughts? Or any service commercially?

It might be the most northern US city if that's what you mean

Are we talking flights on major carriers? Because aircraft can land at the North Pole.

AS goes to Barrow at least once a day. They go to Deadhorse to if you want to see the oil fields.

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

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.

Quoting UAcosCS (Thread starter):

On the North American Continent, yes.

Quoting UAcosCS (Reply 3):

AS flies 737s up there daily. Sometimes, when weather or light load causes a problem they will combine their BRW and SCC flights.
