Optional Services and Fees

Our Services and Fees at a Glance

Air travel involves more than just getting a seat on the plane. We've created these charts to help you determine which services you may need or want during your travels. The services and fees outlined below are offered on flights operated by Alaska Airlines.

Fees for checked baggage, pet travel, paid upgrades, same day confirmed changes, and our Unaccompanied Minor Service can be paid during Web Check-In, at a Check-In Kiosk, or at any of our airport ticket counters.

Now on select flights we’re offering you a new special seating option. Preferred Plus seats are the very best that our main cabin offers. With more legroom, easy seat access, and a free drink, these seats are the very best of the main cabin.

Alaska Airlines may market a flight using our flight number that is actually operated by another carrier. If you are on one of these codeshare flights, their fees may differ. Additionally, anytime your travel includes multiple airlines, different or additional fees may apply.

Please visit the operating carrier's website for a list of their Baggage and Service Fees.
