Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Starting Feb. 27, through March 12, Alaska Airlines is suspending change and cancellation fees for new flight bookings for guests who later decide not to travel because of concerns related to the coronavirus.
If you book a flight prior to March 12 and then decide by that date to change or cancel your trip, you’ll receive full travel credit to fly later on – up to one year from the issuance of the credit.
Fare differences may apply. Visit alaskair.com for further details, where flyers can also use a self-service tool to manage their travel.
“We understand that information about the coronavirus is creating confusion and anxiety for some. Our first goal is to keep our guests safe, and offer peace of mind when it comes to flying with us,” said Andrew Harrison, executive vice president and chief commercial officer. “So, through this period, if you need to change your plans after booking a flight, we’ll work with you on new arrangements and you won’t have to worry about any change or cancellation fees.”
This policy applies to all fares, including Saver Fares, which generally do not allow for any changes or cancellations.
