Alaska’s Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) has undergone a revamp and now features new mobile phone charging stations, new and improved recycling receptacles and a new jet bridge.
“As the gateway to Alaska, ANC is the first or last impression for millions of travellers,” said Jim Szczesniak, ANC’s airport manager. “We strive to provide the residents and visitors of Alaska a positive airport experience that they are happy to share and do our part to support the business and tourism industry,” he continued.
The airport is a primary hub for a number of regional carriers serving North America and Wes Freimuth, Alaska Airlines’ station operations manager revealed how the new jet bridge at Gate C8 has been added just in time for the holiday season. So, passengers will no longer have to board and disembark outside.
As well as 16 new charging stations located throughout the airport, passengers are also being encouraged to do their bit for the environment by recycling their waste appropriately. “With one receptacle we can collect all three recyclables (aluminium, plastic, and paper),” said Szczesniak.
Additionally, the airport is continuing to work on upgrades to make it easier for passengers to connect to the airport’s free Wi-Fi throughout the terminal.
