Ticket Refunds

All tickets may be refunded in full to the original form of payment within the first 24 hours after their initial purchase.

While not every ticket is refundable, we are committed to refunding all eligible tickets within 20 business days for cash purchases and 7 business days for credit card purchases. Note: It may take 7-14 business days for your credit card company to post your refund to your account.

Credit card refunds are made payable to the purchaser's original form of payment. If you purchased your electronic ticket on, you may request your refund online, as long as the ticket is wholly unused. For refunds on all other refundable electronic tickets, please contact Reservations for assistance.

In order to refund a paper ticket, we must first see the physical ticket in order to assess its eligibility. You may take your paper ticket back to the place of purchase to request a refund (i.e. travel agency or any Alaska Airlines ticket counter). You may also mail your paper ticket to the following address for processing. Please include your return mailing address.
