Wondering how your Wine Flies Free from the West Coast? Here’s how it works:
1. Book a trip to wine country
2. Sip and shop at your favorite winery destinations.
Taste your way around a wine region in California, Washington, Oregon or Idaho until you’ve found your wine (or several) you enjoy enough to take home. Pro tip: Hang onto your boarding pass, many wineries in Washington and Oregon offer free tastings when you show your ticket.
3. Pack correctly – don’t seal the box yet
Let the winery know you’ll be checking your wine at the airport, and they’ll help you pack it safely for travel. This might include a foam-lined box, molded cardboard trays, or other protective packaging. Make sure the box is left unsealed for inspection. See more packing tips.
4. Make sure your MP number is in your flight reservation
Make sure your Alaska Mileage Plan number is in your flight reservation before you head to the airport. You can check using the Alaska Airlines app, or by visiting alaskaair.com and selecting “Manage trip.”
5. Drop your wine with a remarkable agent
Check your properly packed case of wine with an Alaska Airlines customer service agent at our ticketing counter. They will inspect the case, seal it and ensure that it is labeled with FRAGILE stickers. Advice: Don’t try to take your case of wine through the TSA security line. That’s way too much liquid.
6. Fly easy
Pat yourself on the back – celebrate on board by treating yourself to a full-pour glass of cabernet sauvignon from Canoe Ridge Vineyard or a chardonnay from Waterbrook Winery in Columbia Valley, Washington. Or if you’re flying First Class, a chardonnay from Broken Earth Winery in Paso Robles, California or a cabernet sauvignon from Intrinsic Wine in Columbia Valley. New pours coming soon: Starting Dec. 16, you can enjoy sipping a glass of cabernet sauvignon from Canoe Ridge or a chardonnay from Healdsburg Ranches Wines in Sonoma, California. First Class will offer a cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay from Browne Family Vineyards in Walla Walla, Washington.
7. Pick up your case, then enjoy!
When you land, pick up your case and you’re on your way. Don’t see your wine with the rest of the bags? Check the oversize baggage area, as many airports don’t send fragile items to the conveyer belt.
