Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and Fairbanks International Airport together comprise the Alaska International Airport System. Offering identical operating agreements and landing fees, AIAS benefits airlines by offering a regional landing alternative if needed.
One in ten jobs in Anchorage is attributable to ANC. Strategically located 9.5 hours from 90% of the industrialized world, ANC is uniquely suited for cargo refueling and technical stops, allowing carriers to maximize their payload while not compromising on travel time. Cargo carriers are able to significantly increase revenue by refueling in Anchorage. Also, federal law offers flexibility to exchange cargo between carriers through cargo transfer rules unique to Alaska and Hawaii.
Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is a state-of-the-art facility. Recent work at the airport includes South Terminal Renovation, the AOC Connector Hallway between the North and South Terminals, and completion runway upgrades to allow for Design Group VI (DGVI) aircraft, such as the Boeing 747-8 and Airbus 380 to land at ANC.
