Alaska Airlines expands safety measures to enhance well-being of guests, employees

Alaska Airlines has announced the expansion of Next-Level Care, including 100 different measures to enhance the safety and well-being of guests and employees, the company said.

Drawing on the expertise of the UW Medicine´s infectious disease experts, Alaska Airlines´ long-time medical advisors, guests will notice changes designed with safety and comfort in mind.

Social distancing decals are located throughout airports to remind flyers to Mind Your Wingspan. The stickers span six feet apart and promote distancing at ticketing counters, baggage drops, customer service centers and gate areas.

Face masks are required for all guests 12 and over, and for all airline employees at ticket-counters, boarding and on the plane.

Customers are expected to bring their own mask and wear it at the airport and during their flight.

Alaska Airlines exceeds CDC cleaning guidelines, using high-grade, EPA-certified disinfectant to clean critical areas throughout the plane.In addition to traditional cleaning with high-level disinfectant, planes are sanitized with electrostatic sprayers that disinfect surfaces throughout the cabin.

Alaska Airlines and its regional partners serve more than 115 destinations across the United States and North America, providing essential air service for our guests along with moving crucial cargo shipments, such as food, medicine, mail and e-commerce deliveries.
