Anchorage, Alaska

Connecting Asia and North America

If you build an MRO facility at ANC, your clients can stop shipping aircraft and engines to the middle of the continent for service. That saves your clients time and money.

Welcome to the great circle route.

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is the world’s 5th-busiest cargo airport because it is strategically located between Asian and North American markets.

Available space, skilled workforce, great quality of life.

With more than 4,000 acres of land leases available for as little as $0.18 per square foot, Alaska’s Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) can accommodate virtually any size or type of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) or parts distribution facility.

Over 31,500 widebody freighters, including Dreamlifters, land at ANC annually, some carrying the 2,600 engines that traverse the Pacific en route to MRO service thousands of miles away. Locating your MRO facility at ANC shortens that route significantly and saves you – and your clients – time and money. That’s why FedEx and Alaska Airlines built dedicated MRO facilities here.

Alaska has a strong aviation culture, two universities with FAA-approved A&P programs, 3 U.S. Air Force bases and the nation’s highest number of aircraft mechanics per capita.

What’s more, the quality of life is exceptional, with good air, water and other environmental factors, surprisingly great restaurants and brewpubs and – hands down – the best fishing and hunting in the world. Between all the hiking, softball and soccer under summer’s midnight sun and the skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling under winter’s aurora borealis, your team will ask why you didn’t come here years ago.

Welcome to the best spot on the globe for your MRO facility serving trans-Pacific airlines or parts-distribution facility serving Asia and North America.

Welcome to the center of the air-cargo world.
