The airport was rebuilt in 2010, and now has a single 970-metre (3,180 ft) runway running roughly east-west, hence numbered 09/27, which straddles the peninsula. The airport is in fairly rugged terrain with mountains and water, and landing an aircraft at Anda is still, after the rebuilding, fairly demanding. The runway now passes on top of the regional main road E39.
The upgrades in 2010 also provided safety zones at the runway and improved approach instrumentation. The airport reopened 26 August 2010.
In 2009, the travel magazine Travel and Leisure claimed Sandane to be one of the 17 scariest runways in the world. As the runway is sandwiched between two fjords, who then have steep hillsides on the other side, it may provide exhilarating rides. However, no fatal accidents have been noted in the airport's history.
