Located 12km south of Anchorage, the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is an important transpacific crossroads for both commercial and cargo flights.

The airport’s south terminal hosts 17 airlines providing domestic flights, whereas the north terminal hosts four international airlines, including China Airlines and Korean Air.

The airport is essential for some of the northern towns and industries, as workers and cargo are constantly ferried north to escape the cold Alaskan winters.
