Alaska Area Codes and Their Locations
Area codes in Alaska represent particular boroughs and cities in the state. A phone number is issued based on the area code covering the subscriber's place of residence. Therefore, learning Alaska area codes can help you recognize local calls and the origins of unsolicited calls bearing the state’s area codes. Residents can also identify unknown callers with reverse phone lookup searches.

Who Controls Alaska Area Codes?
Authorized by the FCC, the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (RCA) is tasked with generating new area codes and maintaining phone numbers in Alaska. Because of increasing consumer demand for phone numbers, prefix codes may be exhausted, thereby necessitating the need for new area codes.
