About Anchorage International Airport
In 2016, Anchorage international Airport, the largest and most heavily trafficked airport in Alaska, handled almost five million passengers. The other Alaskan airports that are primary ports of entry are in Fairbanks and Juneau.
Less than 9.5 hours by plane from 90 percent of the industrial world, ANC is Number 2 in the U.S. (behind Memphis, Tennessee) for landed weight of cargo aircraft.
When it opened in 1953, four years before Alaska became a state, Anchorage International Airport was destined to become the “Air Crossroads of the World.” In the early 1950s, the Anchorage Airport became essential to Alaska with some 90 percent of Alaska’s passenger traffic and 65 percent of its mail coming in and going out on Anchorage-based airlines.
By the 1960s, Anchorage had fulfilled its destiny as the “Air Crossroads of the World” with seven international carriers using the airport as a regular stopover on routes between Europe, Asia and the Eastern United States. As traffic increased, new runways were built and older ones modernized. Ted Stevens Anchorage International:
- Is equidistant from Tokyo and New York
- Handled nearly 5.4 million passengers in 2015
- Has approximately 45 air carriers: 15 domestic and 27 international
- Has 964 paved acres – 768 of airside runways, ramps, aprons, and taxiways, plus 196 acres of pavement maintained in support of general aviation facilities, parking lots, and roads.
- Has three runways over 10,600 feet with the longest at 12,400 feet
- Is never closed for snow (maintenance crews move some six million tons of snow during winter months)
- Is open 24 hours a day

Why elite travelers fly into ANC
To be a tourist: Alaska is known for its immense open spaces, mountains and forests, with plenty of wildlife and many small, lost-in-time towns. If you are into outdoor activities, charter a private business jet into Ted Stevens International Airport to go skiing, mountain biking, kayaking or mountain climbing. North America’s highest peak, Denali (formerly called Mount McKinley) is located in Denali National Park with its towering granite snow-covered spires. Denali National Park and Preserve covers 160 miles of the Alaska Range. There are sightseeing trips to see wildlife and whales.
An interesting fact about tourists to Alaska is that about one third of them are return visitors and they first came to Alaska on a cruise. They fly in on a commercial airline or charter a private business jet to ANC to come back and see more than the limited view they had from a cruise ship.
To fish: Alaska provides year-round fishing if you are willing to try new locales and species.
Peak season for salmon fishing is May through September, with the five major species spread across the season. King Salmon fishing begins in May. Silver Salmon fishing extends into November. The entire summer offers at least one type of salmon fishing, the best time to visit Alaska’s cold climate.
The new species you might be willing to try are found in interior lakes and streams, where you can catch fish like the arctic grayling, which is called the sailfish of the north. Rainbow trout can be found in southcentral lakes and streams with trophy size fish spread from the Kenai River to the Susitna River tributaries.
If you want ocean fish, you can get some of the best halibut in the world, with or without a boat. Surfcasting from the shore is popular – and successful.
To hunt: Thousands of visitors every year fly into Anchorage International Airport – many on chartered business jets – so they can get an air taxi to take them on unguided fly-in hunts. Hiring an air taxi to fly out and drop you off can be a once in a lifetime experience or a nightmare. The more you know, the better off you are, cautions the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
When a hunter calls to ask, “Where can I get a moose (or sheep or caribou or bear or whatever)?” the answer will likely be, “It depends.” The closer to the hunting season, the more accurately the best hunting places can be pinpointed.
Here are the hunting seasons:
- Black bear, brown bear and grizzly bear: September through June (exact dates and limits vary by area)
- Caribou, deer, elk and mountain goat: August through December (year-round in some regions)
- Moose: September through October
- Wolf: August through May
- Wolverine: September through February
- Ptarmigan: August through June 15
- Hare: September through April
- Grouse: August through May 15
- Crow: March through April 15
- Pheasant, quail, partridge, wild turkey and snowy owl: Open season
Most air taxis into the wild offer planes on fixed hourly rates.
