ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The Alaska International Airport System has posted increases in cargo landed weight for the peak shipping season at Fairbanks International Airport and Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
Fairbanks weighed in with a 9.52 percent increase for international landed cargo with 318.5 million pounds from September through November 2000, compared with 290.7 million pounds during the same period of 1999.
Anchorage landed 5.6 billion pounds during the peak fall season in 2000 compared to 5.3 billion pounds in 1999.
Anchorage's numbers could be suspect because of a unique counting method, according to industry accountants.
