Anchorage Airport &
Airlines in Anchorage
Stepping off the plane in Anchorage, visitors rub their eyes and take a closer look at their watches. It’s 11 p.m., it’s still light outside and the airport is very busy. Locals would say it’s typical for summer at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

Located just six miles from downtown Anchorage, transportation from the airport is convenient by taxi, hotel courtesy shuttles or People Mover bus. Upon arrival, stop by the Visit Anchorage Information Centers for assistance or directions.
