Picking up at ANC


The lower level of the South Terminal loop road is Open. Taxis and shuttle service returned to the commercial curb on the lower level. Expect intermittent lane closures through the summer as construction is ongoing. Plan for extra time to get to the airport as traffic is congested along the upper and lower loop.

For safety and to keep traffic moving smoothly, only active loading is permitted at the lower level pickup area in front of the South Terminal. Vehicles may not be left unattended. A licensed driver must stay with the vehicle. Unattended vehicles on the ramp may be subject to a police citation and TSA fine. For more information, please visit our Curb FAQs.
