Anchorage and Pittsburgh Airports Partner to Promote Growth
Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC) and Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) have announced plans to work together to better streamline the air cargo supply chain.
The agreement between the two US airports will boost sales and marketing efforts at both facilities, with a particular emphasis on cargo.
“We are continuing to build Pittsburgh International Airport into an international logistics center and growing cargo is a key driver for that,” said Christina Cassotis, Pittsburgh International Airport CEO. “We’re excited to partner with one of the busiest cargo airports in the world as we continue to sell Pittsburgh as a convenient—and speedy—cargo destination.”
At the center of the air cargo world, Alaska’s Anchorage International Airport can be reached by 90 percent of the industrialized world within 9.5 hours. Anchorage ranked as the sixth busiest cargo airport in the world last year with more than 2.7 million metric tons of cargo passing through. ANC, which serves 28 widebody air cargo carriers, trails only Hong Kong, Memphis, Shanghai, Louisville, and Seoul among cargo hubs.
