Whatever Your Needs, We'll Get You There

Special Services for Accessible Travel

At Alaska Airlines, we strive to provide a travel experience that works for everyone. If you would like our assistance during your trip, we recommend the following to help us make your experience as easy, safe, and comfortable as possible:

  • Make reservations as early as possible. You can request services online or by phone.
  • Let us know of any special requirements—at check-in, in the boarding area, and on the aircraft.
  • Arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure when requesting these services, and present yourself at the departure gate 1 hour prior to departure.
