Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines has been flying since 1932 and is notably recognized as a stand-out performer among domestic carriers in the United States. We provide an exceptional travel experience to our customers with an unwavering commitment to a safe and reliable operation and our award-winning customer service. We were born in a state where aviation is a way of life, not a choice, and where people help each other because they believe it's the right thing to do — not because they're supposed to. Much has changed over the years, but our unique heritage continues to serve as our compass point — our own magnetic "North." Our values have been a part of who we are since our early beginnings in the state of Alaska. We believe this combination of pride in our heritage and passion for our shared values has led to our success in setting the standard for genuine and caring service. Alaska Airlines and our sister carrier, Horizon Air, together serve 111 destinations in the Lower 48, Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Costa Rica and Mexico. Our hubs are in Anchorage, Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles.
