The relationship between Alaska the airline, and Alaska the state is a unique one. It goes far deeper than just a relationship between an airline and the customer who flies with us.
Alaska is where we got our start, and our roots lie with its people. As we have served the Alaskan community for more than 80 years, we want to honor the unique bond that is cherished by our Alaska-based employees, many of whom are actively involved with various events and organization and in other ways that give back to the community in which they live and work.
