Our environment, community, and people
The Department of Transportation (DOT) and Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) have issued several rules with regards to how all air carriers, including Alaska Airlines, display and charge baggage fees.
For more than 80% of our customers, nothing will change. If you buy a ticket from Alaska Airlines and fly solely on Alaska Airlines, you will follow Alaska Airlines baggage policy.
However, when purchasing or flying an itinerary that involves more than one airline, be sure to check your itinerary or email confirmation to determine which airline's policy will apply to your trip.
When shopping for flights at alaskaair.com or through our Reservations Call Center, the applicable baggage information will be provided as soon as your itinerary is selected.
The rules are listed below, along with how Alaska Airlines is complying with those rules.
