Anchorage International Airport

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (KANC/ANC) reopened late in the afternoon on 29 March 2009. Officials had closed the airport in the evening on 27 March after ash from Mount Reboubt, which has erupted 19 times since 22 March, covered the airport’s runways. The ash poses a potential hazard to aircraft engines. Alaska Airlines has resumed flights to the airport, though the potential for further disruptions as a result of the ash remains. Travelers should verify their flight status before departing to the airport.
