Airport Community Outreach Plan 2020

Airport Update

September 2022
  1. Airport Recruitment:

ANC is on the lookout for a variety of people to join our work family. Positions that are under active recruitment efforts are posted online at www.joinANC.com or through Local 71 at the following web addresses: local71.com/jobs. All positions at ANC contribute to the overall success of operations. 

Vacancies include: 

  • Accounting Technician 1
  • Maintenance Specialist Electronics (Technician) Journey II
  • Maintenance Specialist Building/Facility/Construction
  • Environmental Services Journey II (Custodial)
  • Maintenance Specialist Electrician Journey II
  • Maintenance Generalist Journey I
  • Equipment Operators
  • Mechanics
  • Airport Police and Fire Officer I/II
  1. ANC Infrastructure Construction:

The rehabilitation of the terminal loop road required a six-inch elevation of the road under the terminal loop bridge. Signage posted prior to the bridge displays the maximum height a vehicle can be to drive under the bridge (10’ 6”) to make it out the other side unscathed. There have been multiple incidents where RVs have collided with the bridge. If you have an RV that previously fit under the bridge, do not assume it will make it through in the future. Motorist driving RVs or tall passenger vans are highly encouraged to use the commercial curb when picking up their loved ones at ANC.

  1. Cell Phone Parking Lot:

Don’t quite know when your traveler will get their bags and be ready for pick-up? Utilize ANC’s lovely, FREE cell phone parking lot! The cellphone lot is conjoined with the DOT&PF Central Region Headquarters (the Upside-down building) parking lot – minutes away from ANC (did we mention it is FREE). Parked or idling vehicles at the curb present safety issues and traffic congestion. Additionally, parking in the garage is free for the first 30 minutes. Only vehicles conducting active loading/unloading should be at the curb. Click HERE for directions.

  1. Lake Hood Seaplane Base:

Lake Hood is the world’s largest sea plane base, which means we have a plethora of small aircraft activity. Whether you are driving in a car, riding a bicycle, or pounding the pavement by foot, remember that all aircraft always have the right-of-way on the roadways, which in many places also double as taxiways. Please be sure to read all posted signage and follow the instructions. No people or pets are allowed on lake surfaces and all pets must be on a leash, this is for everyone’s safety.

  1. Departures and Arrivals:

All passenger departing ANC, including on international flights, must check-in at the South Terminal. Once checked in, any international passenger departing from the North Terminal, will be directed appropriately. While ANC has made several efforts to educate our visitors, there are still some select passengers getting dropped off at the North Terminal expecting to check in. ANC greatly appreciates your support and assistance in alerting the traveling public to the international check-in at the South Terminal.

International travelers arriving from Europe (Condor and Eurowings Discover) deplane at the North Terminal. 

  1. Does your destination require masks, a COVID test, or proof of vaccination?

Travelers destined for locations that require proof of a negative test or a vaccination certificate must have their documentation with them prior to arriving at ANC. Boarding decisions are made by the individual airlines, not ANC. There is not a public testing site in the terminal. To find testing locations, visit https://anchoragecovidtest.org/.

  1. *IMPORTANT UPDATE* ANC Infrastructure Construction:

  1. B9 Passenger Boarding Bridge (PBB) Replacement:

The federal government recently awarded ANC approximately $2.4 million in grant funds, through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s Airport Terminal Program, to replace the B9 PBB. The B9 PBB, installed in the early 90s, is the oldest in the South Terminal. If and when the current PBB breaks down, maintenance is challenging as many of the parts for the current PBB are obsolete and difficult to acquire. The upgrade will provide a distinct safety and operational enhancement to airport operations. ANC plans to put the project out to bid this fall. Construction is planned to occur Summer of 2023.

  1. Lake Hood Seaplane Base:

Lake Hood is the world’s largest sea plane base, which means we have a plethora of small aircraft activity.

July 2022
  1. ANC Infrastructure Construction:
    • The end is near! The rehabilitation of the terminal loop road is in its home stretch! Taxis and shuttles are back at the commercial loop and only the ride-share app transportation is on the upper level, as usual. Paving is complete and all that is left is lane striping, which is scheduled to take place overnight from July 8 through July 11. Please plan to arrive at ANC 2.5 hours if you are catching a flight during that time. We appreciate your patience and thank you for driving slowly to keep the construction workers and travelers safe.
    • Our neighbors may notice more noise than usual this summer from aircraft departing.
    • An overview of ANC construction projects can be found online at https://dot.alaska.gov/anc/documents/2022-ANC-Projects.pdf

The survey packet can also be found online at  https://dot.alaska.gov/airportwater/anchorage/.

  1. Animal Safety:

ANC would like to remind recreationists to keep your eyes and ears open to hopefully avoid encounters with wildlife. Wild animals are greatly protective of their young and will not hesitate to go on the offensive. Please give any animal a wide berth.

Lake Hood is the world’s largest sea plane base, which means we have a plethora of small aircraft activity.

  1. Cell Phone Parking Lot:

Gas prices these days… aren’t they irritatingly high? One way to cut down on your fuel consumption would be to utilize ANC’s lovely, FREE cell phone parking lot instead of circling through the construction on the terminal loop road. The cellphone lot is conjoined with the DOT&PF Central Region Headquarters (the Upside-down building) parking lot – minutes away from ANC (did we mention it is FREE?). Click HERE for directions. Additionally, parking in the garage is free for the first 30 minutes. Parked or idling vehicles at the curb present safety issues and traffic congestion.

May 2022
  1. ANC Infrastructure Construction:
    • The most noticeable construction project that continues to impact the public is the rehabilitation of the terminal loop road. We are striving to have the traffic pattern return to its usual route the Friday before Memorial Day weekend; however, construction will be ongoing through the summer. The much-needed upgrades include storm drain improvements, asphalt resurfacing and signage improvements.
    • Lake Hood gravel strip 14/32 is getting a bit more of a facelift this year. The strip rehabilitation starts the first week of May. Active construction will last approximately two weeks then the strip will be given a week to set before the planes are welcomed back to use it.

  1. Cell Phone Parking Lot:

Ever feel like you are just going around in circles? Well, to cut one more pointless circle out of your life, how about visiting our lovely, FREE cell phone parking lot that overlooks the world’s largest seaplane base— the pristine, one(two?)-of-a-kind Lakes Hood and Spenard. Especially with construction of the Terminal Loop Road, parked or idling vehicles at curb present safety issues and traffic congestion. Only vehicles conducting active loading/unloading should be at the curb. The cellphone lot is conjoined with the DOT&PF Central Region Headquarters (the Upside-down building) parking lot – minutes away from ANC (did we mention it is FREE?). Click HERE for directions. Additionally, parking in the garage is free for the first 30 minutes.

  1. The Tourists are Coming!

Alaska is open for business, and we are spiffying up our welcome mat right here at ANC. Seat capacity coming into ANC is slated at roughly 5% higher than pre-pandemic summer travel in 2019. That is exciting news as Alaska has a robust tourism industry which helps charge the economy for Anchorage and the state. 

  1. Spring Cleaning!!

April (snow) showers brings May flowers… and rubbish hidden from the winter’s worth of snow melting away. May 6 is Clean Up Day for ANC. If you would like to participate on the day, or on your own schedule, you can pick up trash bags from Airfield Maintenance shop at 4100 Aircraft Drive. We appreciate all the help we can get keeping airport property looking its best.

  1. Walking with a Purpose!

Walk MS: Anchorage 2022 will take you for a lovely stroll, rain, or shine, around the Lake Hood Seaplane Base on May 14 at 1000 AM.  The event starts and finishes at the Lake Front Hotel (4800 Spenard Rd.). Be sure to say hello to Airport Police and Fire’s ‘Team Q’ while you are there. Our officers are walking to show support for a beloved co-worker that lives with MS. More information regarding Walk MS: Anchorage 2022 can be found online at Walk MS: Anchorage 2022 (donordrive.com).

  1. Lake Hood Seaplane Base:

Going… going… soooo close… When will the ice go out?? Short answer is, we don’t know.  History and current conditions tell us that the first week of May is a good bet, but the ice can go out any time from late-April to mid-May. The ice condition fluctuates due to Spring temperatures, sun exposure, and wind. Pilots should always check the FAA NOTAMs prior to utilizing the aerodrome to verify up-to-date weather and ice conditions. Only aircraft and ANC official vehicles are allowed on Lake Hood and Lake Spenard. NO PEOPLE OR PETS ARE ALLOWED on lake surfaces, this is for everyone’s safety.

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.

5. Airport Recruitment: The Airport is recruiting for equipment mechanics and operators, as well as facility maintenance positions.
