A ticketed safety assistant is required under the following circumstances:
- The traveler is unable to assist in his or her own evacuation from the aircraft in the event of an emergency.
- The traveler cannot respond to crew member safety instructions.
- The traveler has both severe hearing and vision impairments and cannot establish communication with crew members that is adequate to permit understanding of the safety briefing.
If it is determined that a traveler requires a ticketed safety assistant, but is unable to provide one, Alaska Airlines may deny travel.
Please notify reservations at least 48 hours in advance if you will be traveling with a safety assistant, so we can provide you and your safety assistant adjacent seats on the aircraft.
