Accessible services

At Alaska Airlines, we strive to make your travel experience as easy, safe, and comfortable as possible.

To help us offer you the best travel experience:

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

We are dedicated to providing convenient and comfortable service for all our passengers. We strongly believe that our services and aircraft should be accessible to all individuals with disabilities.

If you have concerns regarding discrimination, accommodations, or services for any passengers with disabilities we would like you to report them. We are accountable for passengers traveling on Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air, PenAir between Anchorage and Dutch Harbor, and SkyWest flight series 3300-3499. Please report your concerns to an airport customer service agent and request to speak with a complaints resolution official (CRO).

Our CROs have been specially trained in sensitivity and awareness, as well as applicable Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT), and Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA) regulations. They will be happy to respond to your concerns. Our CROs are available during operating hours at all airport locations.

If you are not at the airport, please call our dedicated accessible services line at 1-800-503-0101 for assistance.

Contacting the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)

The TSA has launched TSA Cares, a toll-free helpline to provide information and assistance to passengers with disabilities and medical conditions and their families before they fly.

You may call TSA Cares toll free at 1-855-787-2227 prior to traveling with questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint. Travelers who are deaf or hard of hearing can use a relay service to contact TSA Cares or can e-mail TSA-ContactCenter@dhs.gov.

The hours of operation for the TSA Cares helpline are Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. EST, excluding federal holidays. After hours, you can find information about traveling with disabilities and medical needs at: tsa.gov.
