1. ANC North/South Runway Renewal Project: Project involves rehabilitating and widening RW 15/33 (the north/south runway) and updating taxiway geometry to meet FAA standards. Construction is planned for 7 days per week, 24 hours per day, April through October. During construction, the majority of air traffic will be shifted to the east/west runways. Most arrivals will land from the west, and most departures will take off to the east, creating a temporary increase in air traffic and noise over the city. To stay up to date on the project and submit comments, visit the website at anc15-33.com.

2. Passenger Drop-off/Pick-up: This summer season we are reminding the public when you pick up/drop off passengers at the airport, the driver must stay with the vehicle at all times. Vehicles on the ramp cannot be left unattended and may be subject to a potential Police citation and a TSA fine. The Anchorage airport is one of the few places that offers free parking in the south terminal parking garage for up to 30 minutes. A cell phone lot is also available to those awaiting arrivals, and further information can be found here: ANC Traveler Info/Parking Services.

3. Passenger Screening Wait Times: While getting through the TSA Screening Checkpoint at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is usually a breeze, increased wait times are expected for passengers in TSA’s passenger screening lines this summer season. Travelers are advised to arrive at the airport at least two hours prior to departure time. All lanes are expected to be staffed and operational during the peak times.

4. Economic Impact of Alaska’s Aviation Industry: The 2019 Economic Contribution of the Aviation Industry to Alaska’s Economy presents an economic analysis of Alaska’s aviation industry. The report shows that the aviation industry supports more than 35,000 jobs statewide while adding more than $3.8 billion annually to the economy. The Alaska International Aviation System, comprised of Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and Fairbanks International Airport, generates more than 26,000 jobs. In Anchorage, 1 in 10 jobs are attributed to the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, and 1 in 13 jobs are attributed to the Fairbanks International Airport. The report is available on the Alaska Aviation System Plan website at alaskaasp.com/Documents.aspx.
