Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators 2022

Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators celebrates company cultures that empower employees at all levels to improve processes, create new products, or invent new ways of doing business.  

This award was given to Alaska for our True North scholarship program. We launched the program late last year to diversify our flight deck and build the pilot pipeline. The program started with students from two historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) – Delaware State University and University of Maryland-Eastern Shore.

Innovation Team of the Year

Our team that worked on Flyways AI™, an industry-changing platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to assist dispatchers in making flight operations more efficient and sustainable by optimizing routes and improving the predictability and flow of airline traffic, won Fast Company’s Innovation Team of the Year. Alaska is the first airline worldwide to adopt the technology.

This is the first year we have won this award. See the full list of winners.
