The Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) is booming with construction and development is well under way this summer. $100 million in airfield construction is already under way. Investments are being made by the airport's tenants. Alaska Airlines is nearing completion of its $40-million-dollar hangar and the airport is announcing the start of construction of a new multi-million-dollar tenant project.

“This is encouraging and a testament that the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport continues to be a vibrant economic engine for the city of Anchorage and our State,” said Jim Szczesniak, Airport manager.

The airport hosted a ground-breaking ceremony at the construction site of ROTAK Helicopter Services' new facility on July 27. Construction of a hangar worth $2.2 million at the Kulis Business Park is now under way. Founded in Alaska, ROTAK provides specialized helicopter services including precision external load lifting of the KMAX, an intermeshing rotor synchropter.
