Picking up at ANC

ANC is actively enforcing the no-waiting policy for vehicles outside baggage claim at the lower level pickup area in front of the South Terminal. Only active loading is permitted in this area, and the driver must stay with the vehicle. Unattended vehicles on the ramp may be subject to a police citation and TSA fine.

Terminal Assistance: If you need to enter the terminal to assist your party, you may park for free in our South Terminal Parking Garage for up to 30 minutes. Navigate to the South Terminal Parking Garage

Cell Phone Lot: If your party does not require assistance, please wait in the free Cell Phone Lot until your party is at the curb with their baggage. Navigate to the Cell Phone Lot
