Alaska Airlines introduces convenient, touch-free travel for guests

Alaska Airlines has announced it is introducing improved technology that makes it easier for guests to travel trough-free, the company said.

Over the coming weeks, new touch-free options for Alaska guests and employees will include the ability:

-To pre-order meals and purchase food and beverages on board using a stored credit card (pending return of food and beverage for purchase in main cabin).
-To print bag tags without having to touch check-in kiosks.
-For agents to scan boarding passes up to six feet away while boarding.
-To receive a text message instead of a printed boarding pass if guests don´t already have the Alaska Airlines mobile app.
-To get an emailed receipt for baggage instead of printed receipt.

Alaska has implemented nearly 100 actions to keep guests and employees safe. Flyers must always wear a cloth mask or face covering when at the airport or onboard Alaska aircraft and complete a health agreement at check-in to acknowledge and attest to their willingness to adhere to the mask requirement.

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