Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport ANC is Alaska's primary airport and serves the State's largest City of Anchorage. Aside from being one of the world’s busiest cargo airports, it serves as an important passenger gateway to the Alaskan Frontier, Hawaii, parts of the Far East, and North America. The Airport is named in honor of its late U.S. Senator Ted Stevens.
It may be noted that even though Anchorage Airport receives an average yearly snowfall of 60 inches, it has managed to operate while other airports shut down, mostly due to its award-winning snow-removal personnel. Understandably, however, air traffic reaches its peak during the three summer months.
ANC Airport is located off Minnesota Drive, a few miles SW of downtown Anchorage, and can be reached from either Glenn or Seward Highways.
With three long runways and estimated 5 million annual passengers, Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is hub to Alaska Airlines, and is served by a host of national and international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe, as well as by seasonal & charter flights.
Alaska Airlines offers Summer service to Spokane, WA.
Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport has two passenger terminals - International North & Domestic South.
