Transfer Rights

The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport has consistently proven to be a pivotal asset for the airline industry. Acting as a strategic refueling stop, the airport facilitates a meticulous balance between payload and fuel consumption, empowering airlines to efficiently transport more cargo with reduced fuel costs, thereby amplifying operational efficiency and bolstering profitability.

In 2003, the airport secured distinctive cargo transfer authorities from the US Department of Transportation, significantly elevating the operational landscape for carriers. These exclusive rights provide an array of transfer options, transcending conventional capabilities. Airlines now have the prerogative for seamless on-line transfers within their own aircraft, dynamic inter-line transfers between diverse carriers, the amalgamation of US and non-US cargo, and the execution of change-of-gauge transfers to diverse global destinations, all originating from Anchorage. This elevated spectrum of transfer rights not only enhances logistical operations but also underscores the airport’s crucial role as a global hub for optimized cargo transportation.
