ANC Prepares for Summer Travel

April 12, 2023 (ANCHORAGE, AK) – The tourists are coming! Despite all the snow still on the ground, preparations for the busy summer travel season are already underway. United Airlines added two non-stop flights to Chicago daily at the beginning of April, to join its year-round service to Denver. United Airlines will start its full summer schedule of destinations to Newark, Houston, and San Francisco early June.

The first week in May American Airlines returns to ANC with non-stop flights to Dallas/Ft. Worth and Chicago. Air Canada will also return with non-stop flights to Vancouver, BC Canada the first week in May.

The middle of May brings more Delta Air Lines non-stop service to Seattle, Minneapolis, and Atlanta, as well as increased hours of operation for its pop-up Airline Lounge on ANC’s mezzanine level.

By the beginning of June, Sun Country Air will provide non-stop service to Minneapolis. Eurowings Discover and Condor, both offering direct, non-stop flights to Frankfurt, Germany, will come to ANC twice a week. Eurowings Discover and Condor will have passenger check-in and departures from the South Terminal, but arrivals will occur at ANC’s North Terminal. (Condor has a third weekly flight that will go to Fairbanks before it flies to Frankfurt, which will arrive and depart from North Terminal.)

ANC also looks forward to Alaska Airlines ramping up its service frequencies, including the new non-stop route to Paine Field, in Everett, Washington.
