Cheap Alaska Airlines Flights

Alaska Airlines, despite its name, is based in Seattle, Washington. Its main hub is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, though it does have a large presence at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport as well. In addition to Seattle and Anchorage, its focus cities are at Portland International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport and Vancouver International Airport.

Having once been a small airline serving only the Pacific Northwest, Alaska has grown into a large airline with a route network serving 80 destinations throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. Its presence is strongest on the US West Coast, where it serves all five of the major airports in the Los Angeles area and all three of the major airports in the San Francisco area, but it also has operated a nonstop flight between Seattle and Washington, D.C. since 2001. Other long-haul destinations served from Seattle include Boston, Miami and Newark.

Alaska has a good reputation in the industry, and has been given high ratings by travel magazine readers. The airline was the first to sell tickets on their own website, provide for online check-in and have self-service check-in kiosks at airports. The parent company’s regional airline, Horizon Air, operates very closely with Alaska, often sharing routes. Alaska is not a part of any of the major airline alliances, but partners on its frequent flyer program include Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Northwest Airlines, KLM, Air France, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Qantas.
