Alaska consolidated to two time zones – Alaska Time and Hawaii-Aleutian Time – in 1983 to put our state capitol, Juneau, on the same time zone as the more populated Anchorage and Fairbanks (and to make doing business with companies in the Lower 48 states a little easier).
The Alaska Time Zone observes standard time by subtracting nine hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC−09:00). During daylight saving time its time offset is eight hours (UTC−08:00). The zone includes nearly all of the U.S. state of Alaska and is one hour behind the Pacific Time Zone .
Hawaii is 5 hours behind New York .
The United States is divided into six time zones: Hawaii -Aleutian time, Alaska time , Pacific time , Mountain time , Central time and Eastern time .
