Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC)
For more than 50 years, Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) has played an integral role in the growth of Anchorage and the State of Alaska. Today, the airport serves approximately 5 million passengers per year, houses the world’s largest and busiest floatplane base, and is a hub of commercial activity within the global marketplace.
Aviation is a necessity in Alaska. Only 2 percent of Alaska’s landmass is accessible via roads, and 82 percent of Alaska’s communities are not connected to the road system. Aviation is a lifeline and the airport is a primary link in the supply chain for much of the state.
Established 1961, the Alaska International Airport System (AIAS) is comprised of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) and Fairbanks International Airport (FAI). Working together as a system, the two airports are able to provide continuity in services and fees for their airline customers. Both airports are able to accommodate any type or size of aircraft, and both have state-of-the-art landing systems and terminal facilities. Both ANC and FAI are capable of handling Design Group VI aircraft with lengthened runways and expanded aircraft parking areas to accommodate this new generation of aircraft.
