Located in the Fairbanks North Star Borough of the U.S. state of Alaska, Fairbanks International Airport is a state-owned airport that is served by a number of passenger airlines, including Alaska Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Frontier Airlines. The airport is also used as a refueling stop for several cargo airlines. 

Runway and terminals at Fairbanks.

FIA has a new terminal that was constructed in recent years after the old one was demolished. The new airport offers enhanced security systems that meet the latest Transportation Security Administration (TSA) standards.

Alaska has a fully established air service industry. There is limited highway access in Alaska - there are cities, towns, and villages that can only be reached by air - and this makes air travel one of the most common transportation modes in and out of the state. The air industry consists of major airlines, regional commuter airlines, chartered bush flying services, and small air taxi services.

Alaska is the US’s largest state and has a longer coastline than the rest of U.S. states combined. Alaska is famous for its scenery and natural beauty that consists of active volcanoes, lakes, glaciers, marshlands, and wetland permafrost. This beautiful state offers breathtaking views from up in the air.

If you want to have some fun flying into Alaska and enjoy the state’s natural beauty, you will love Aerosoft new product, Fairbanks X for FSX – an accurate presentation of the airport.
