Alaska Airlines officially becomes first U.S. airline to launch electronic bag tag program 

Today, we became the first airline in the United States to launch an electronic bag tag program, which will enable guests to tag their own luggage through the airline’s mobile app before they even reach the airport.

Winter weather is impacting our flights in Seattle

Additional snow is expected for the Seattle area beginning Wednesday afternoon/night. While Tuesday was challenging for many guests, who experienced long taxi times and deicing delays, our strategy of proactively thinning our flight schedule worked to mitigate the worst impacts from the storm. We’re implementing a similar strategy for this next snowfall.


Our people and loyal guests are the reason our airline flies high above the rest. We are committed to creating a culture of belonging, where all our employees and guests feel safe, respected, valued and empowered.
