Before Your Trip

Travel Documents

At Alaska Airlines, we require each traveler to be over 18 years old to present valid government issued ID. We will ask that you present to a Customer Service Agent and at the Security Checkpoint. Children under the age of 18 don’t need photo ID when they are traveling domestically.

In order to speed up the security and check-in process, please ensure the name on your travel documents matches the name on your itinerary and ticket.

Here is a list of Identification that we will accept:

  • One non-expired government-issued photo ID, such as:
    • Driver's License
    • State ID Card
