Mobile check-in details

Check-in kiosk

Check yourself in using our check-in kiosks, located at all of the airports throughout the Alaska Airlines system.

With carry-on baggage only

Available on the calendar day of departure, until 40 minutes prior to scheduled departure time.

Just like online check-in, purchase First Class upgrades, change your seat assignment, and print travel receipts. Once the kiosk prints your boarding pass, you can head straight to the gate.

With checked baggage

You may pay for checked baggage charges at a check-in kiosk up to 4 hours* prior to your flights scheduled departure time. Once your boarding pass is printed, proceed to the baggage-check location. Review our airport guides to determine ticket counter hours for your airport, as they may not open until closer to your departure time.

* Due to restrictions for US Customs pre-clearance, Vancouver (YVR) can only accept bags 3 hours prior to departure. Calgary (YYC) can only accept bags 2 hours prior to departure.

Ticket Counter Check-In

If you are traveling with a paper ticket, or just need some extra help with the check-in process on the day of departure, our customer service agents are always available to help get you going with an in-person check-in. Please note that checked baggage is only accepted within 4 hours of your scheduled departure.
