April 2023

  1. Parking Garage Rehabilitation Project:

The South Terminal Parking Garage construction is underway. Parking will be exceedingly limited through the summer. Structural restoration, asphalt replacement and re-stripping must be completed. Travelers should allot extra time if they need to utilize parking at the airport. ANC encourages travelers to be dropped off or picked up instead of using parking. There are also off-site businesses that provide parking and shuttle services that should be considered. Please follow all construction information signs around the airport and drive safe.

  1. Summer Travel:

The tourists are coming! Despite all the snow still on the ground, preparations for the busy summer travel season are already underway. The increased summer airline schedule starts first week in May with American Airlines coming back with their direct flights to Dallas/Ft. Worth and Chicago. United Airlines adds in a direct flight to Chicago at the first of April to join its year-round service to Denver and then starts their full summer schedule of destinations (Newark, NJ, Houston and San Francisco) on June 1.

Air Canada will return with direct flights to Vancouver, BC Canada the first week in May. The middle of May brings more Delta connection to Seattle, Minneapolis, and Atlanta, as well as increased hours of operation for their pop-up Airline Lounge on the mezzanine level. By the beginning of June, we’ll have a full schedule of flights from Sun Country Air going direct to Minneapolis, and then a return of Eurowings and Condor both offering direct, non-stop flights to Frankfurt, Germany. Eurowings and Condor will have passenger check -in and departures from the South Terminal, and North Terminal arrivals. Condor has a third weekly flight that will go to Fairbanks before it flies to Frankfurt which will arrive and depart from North Terminal.

Last but not least, we can’t forget our friends at Alaska Airlines as they ramp up their frequencies, including their new non-stop route to Paine Field, in Everett, Washington

  1. Airport PFAS Testing:

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF) is working with Shannon & Wilson, Inc. (S&W) and the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to identify and sample water supply wells potentially affected by PFAS near the ANC. Water supply well investigations and sampling is nearly completed within the study area adjacent to the airport boundary. Communications with households are underway regarding their individual results. Upon the completion of the sampling effort, DOT&PF’s PFAS program will produce a publicly available report that includes a map of sample locations and results.
