Airline travel is essentially the easiest mode of transportation for travelers getting to and around Alaska. As the state with the fourth-highest number of airports in the U.S. (behind Texas, Florida and California), it is important that Alaska’s airports are maintained and up-to-date with current safety standards. The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities is responsible for publishing bids for any airport design or improvement services in the state. Vendors interested in bidding on these type of opportunities can go directly to Alaska’s DOT website and search through the Open Public Notices or through Alaska’s Vendor Self Service portal, where they can register to do business with the state.
