Two airlines boost number of stops at Anchorage

Posted: Tuesday, April 04, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Two airlines have announced plans to increase the number of stops they make at Anchorage International Airport.

Airport Marketing Manager Linda Close says Korean Airlines had been routing three passenger flights a week through Anchorage on a Seoul-Toronto run. But the carrier added three flights per week as of March 27 and will add three more passenger flights a week on April 14, Close said.

Dallas-based Kitty Hawk, a cargo carrier, plans to add daily service on Tuesdays through Saturdays from its hub at Fort Wayne, Ind., to Anchorage via Seattle, Close said. Kitty Hawk will be flying an Airbus A-300.

Rich Wilson, the airport's development manager, said cargo airlines arriving in Anchorage from Asia are flying so full that Kitty Hawk, whose focus is U.S. freight forwarding, could pick up some of the extra cargo bound for the Lower 48.
