There’s Probably a Permit for That…

What are you doing at the airport? If you are on ANC property providing a commercial service or sharing a message to people traversing the airport, chances are you need a permit. To make sure you have the permit and information you need to appropriately operate at the airport, please contact Brandon Tucker in our leasing department for help at brandon.tucker@alaska.gov.

Holiday travel and Parking:

Even outside of the holidays, ANC’s short-term and long-term parking options have been full lately. We highly encourage travelers to have a plan so they may avoid frustrations and delays. The cell phone parking lot can be used to avoid a parking dilemma, and it is FREE. The cellphone lot is conjoined with the DOT&PF Central Region Headquarters (the Upside-down building) parking lot – minutes away from ANC. Only vehicles conducting active loading/unloading should be at the curb. Click HERE for directions. Another good parking option is the North Terminal Pay Parking lot where the first half hour of parking is free.

New Services at ANC:

  • On November 16, ANC welcomed the inaugural flight of Aleutian Airways, who provides direct, non-stop service to Unalaska/Dutch Harbor. Check out their flight schedule at flyaleutian.com.
  • On November 30, Alaska Airlines started new service between Anchorage and Paine Field, located in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle. According to the airline, this route has been their most requested from the public. For more information, visit alaskaair.com.

Lake Hood Seaplane Base:

The world’s largest sea plane base is frozen over. Plane owners have switched from floats to skis to be able to land on the ice. No matter how tempting, no people or pets are allowed on lake surfaces; only aircraft and official ANC field maintenance personnel are allowed. As always, all pets must be on a leash on ANC property, this is for everyone’s safety.
