Alaska Airlines issuing Peace of Mind waiver for flights within and out of Washington State
- Seattle, WA
Alaska Airlines has begun their “Peace of Mind” waivers for flights within and out of Washington for new flights booked between February 27, 2020 and March 12, 2020, for travel through June 1, 2020.
If you purchased your tickets through a third party, such as Expedia, another travel agency, or another airline, contact them directly for assistance. Alaska Airlines will waive the change fee only for tickets purchased between February 27 and March 12, 2020, with original travel between February 27 and June 1, 2020. Any difference in fare will apply. New travel must be completed by December 31, 2020.
Please note: Saver fare bookings cannot be changed. If your Saver fare qualifies for this flexible travel policy, you must cancel your trip and rebook with the funds in your Alaska My Account wallet.
The waiver is valid only for tickets issued by Alaska Airlines. Tickets can be identified by a 13-digit ticket number beginning with Alaska Airlines code "027";. Tickets issued by other airlines with a different carrier code (ticket numbers not beginning with “027”) are subject to the waiver policy of other airline.
Travel to/from Seattle (SEA)
As major construction continues at SeaTac airport, there may be delays during peak travel hours. Travel may also be affected by a series of updates to improve your future airport trips, including:
The continued expansion, renovation, and modernization of the North Satellite terminal, with fewer escalators operating between the train level and the North Satellite ConcourseLimited food and shopping options in some areas as merchants are upgradedFlights operating out of remote gates via the newly opened D Concourse Annex, meaning some guests will travel on a shuttle bus to and from their aircraft.
Be sure to arrive at least 2 hours before your flight departs to give yourself plenty of time to navigate these ongoing airport changes, and pay close attention to airport signs added to guide you during construction.
Travel to/from Yakima (YKM)
Between August 24-30, 2020, Yakima Air Terminal (YKM) will be temporarily closed for runway maintenance. The airport will close after our 5 am flight on August 24, 2020 and reopen the evening of August 30, 2020. Alaska Airlines will not be flying to or from Yakima during the closure. If you’re planning a trip at that time, Alaska recommends traveling between Yakima (YKM) and Seattle (SEA) airports.
Guests are experiencing longer than normal wait times at security checkpoints when departing from Canada. We recommend the following to help expedite the process through security lines and US Border Protection in Calgary (YYC), Edmonton (YEG), and Vancouver (YVR).
Travel from Canada
Arrive at the airport for check-in at least 2 hours prior to scheduled departure at Calgary (YYC), Edmonton (YEG), and Vancouver (YVR) airports. Make sure you have your boarding pass and passport ready to present for verification at the security checkpoint and US Customs.
