Award Winning Service and Location-

The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (TSAIA) has been awarded Air Cargo Excellence (ACE) Awards in three separate categories. TSAIA won the ACE Award for the best North American Airport, the Specialty Cargo Category, and the Platinum Award for airports with over 1 Million Tons Category.

The Air Cargo Excellence Awards are conducted by Air Cargo World an industry publication who surveys forwarders, cargo agents, and 3rd party logistics providers across the industry to determine the best air carriers and airports in the air cargo business.

“Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is proud to be recognized again as one of the premier air cargo airports in the world” states John Parrott, Anchorage Airport Manager;” As part of the Alaska International Airport System, we and the Fairbanks International Airport strive to maintain efficient, service oriented airports that cultivate an internationally business friendly environment. That, in addition to our geography, makes Alaska the AeroNexus of trade in the Pacific Rim.”

As the Platinum 1 Million Tons Category winner, TSAIA takes its place as the number two airport in the world for cargo, edging out Memphis and just barely behind number one Incheon Airport in Korea. Anchorage continues to improve as an international cargo hub, despite the increase in fuel efficient aircraft. The awards are based on the Air Cargo Excellence Survey, established in 2005, which measures and ranks airlines and airports according to a variety of performance factors.

Liberalized Cargo Transfer-

The Alaska International Airport System has the most liberalized air cargo transfer rights in the United States. Air carriers can create new opportunities for global cargo logistics and integrated alliance partner networks by taking advantage of expanded cargo transfer rights at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC). As of January 2004, a new law permits air cargo to or from a foreign country to be transferred to another airline in Alaska without being considered to have broken its international journey.
