Sitka Rocky Gutierrez Airport (IATA: SIT, ICAO: PASI, FAA LID: SIT) is a state owned, public use airport located west of the central business district of Sitka, a city and borough in the U.S. state of Alaska.
The airport is named after Sitka's former mayor Rocky Gutierrez. It features a single terminal with a jetway for the sole jet service provider, Alaska Airlines. There is a single runway on a paved causeway that juts off Japonski Island. Deceased tuberculosis patients from the nearby SEARHC/Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital were buried on airport grounds and had to be relocated during construction. That section of the airport is still unofficially called The Mausoleum.
As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 68,197 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008, 62,498 enplanements in 2009, and 64,536 in 2010. It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a primary commercial service airport (more than 10,000 enplanements per year).

DUT | Unalaska Airport (Unalaska, AK)



Quote:
Unalaska Airport (IATA: DUT, ICAO: PADU, FAA LID: DUT) is a state owned, public use airport in the City of Unalaska, on Amaknak Island in the Aleutian Islands, off the coast of the U.S. state of Alaska. It is located on the Bering Sea coast of Unalaska Island, 800 miles (1,300 km) southwest of Anchorage and 1,950 miles (3,140 km) from Seattle.
The official name of the City of Unalaska's port is Dutch Harbor. That name is also applied to the portion of Unalaska on Amaknak Island, which is located across a bridge from the rest of the city on Unalaska Island.[3] Therefore the airport is sometimes referred to as Dutch Harbor Airport. In 2002, the State of Alaska renamed it Tom Madsen Airport in honor of Charles Thomas Madsen Sr., a bush pilot who was killed in an airplane accident that year. However, the Federal Aviation Administration still refers to it as Unalaska Airport.
Scheduled commercial airline service is provided by PenAir, a code share partner of Alaska Airlines. At one point Alaska Airlines operated Boeing 737-200 Combi jetliners to the airport with these aircraft transporting a combination of passengers and freight on the main deck of the aircraft. However, due to load restrictions as a result of the short runway as well as cancellations due to weather, Alaska Airlines then contracted the service via a code sharing arrangement to PenAir in 2004. PenAir currently operates Saab 340 regional turboprop aircraft into the airport. AirPac also previously served the airport with British Aerospace BAe 146-100 jets with this aircraft type having enhanced short runway takeoff and landing performance. The airfield runway is 4,100 feet long which is quite short for jet operations when compared with typical runways normally used by mainline jet aircraft. Other airlines that served the airport in the past included MarkAir operating Boeing 737-200 Combi jet aircraft and Reeve Aleutian Airways flying Lockheed L-188 Electra turboprops via a code sharing agreement with Alaska Airlines.
As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 28,234 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2008, 26,705 enplanements in 2009, and 26,711 in 2010. It is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a primary commercial service airport (more than 10,000 enplanements per year).

ANC | Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (Anchorage, AK)

Alaska Dispatch News: IRS regulations prevent sleeping pods at Anchorage airport

Quote:
Sean Doogan | September 14, 2014

Plans to install sleeping pods at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport have been grounded by, of all things, Internal Revenue Service codes.

The pods, which were planned for the airport's C concourse, would have contained two to three bunks each for weary and laid-over travelers to get some cheap rest before boarding their next flight. Their installation would have made Anchorage's airport one of the first in the nation to utilize the so-called "micro hotels" and would have increased the airport's already growing nonflight revenue.

ANC | Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (Anchorage, AK)

Anchorage airport looks to add hotel catering to business travelers

Quote:
Travelers using Stevens International Airport may have more options when it comes to sleeping in the terminal.

KTVA reports that airport management has started paperwork to build a hotel on airport property. Airport Manager John Parrott told the TV station that business travelers looking for a close place to stay would likely benefit the most.

It’s unclear exactly where the hotel would go, though it would likely be connected to a terminal with commercial flights.

It’s not the first time in recent months that airport has considered sleeping options for travelers. In September, the airport was forced to abandon plans for “sleeping pods” after it was found the project would violate Internal Revenue Service codes.

According to Parrott, construction of the new hotel could start in the summer of 2016 and be completed by the end of the year.
