Alaska Airlines strengthens face covering policy to protect guests, employees from COVID-19

Alaska Airlines has announced it has strengthened its face-covering policy as part of continuing efforts to keep guests and employees safe from infection from COVID-19, the company said.

All guests, age 2 and older, must wear a cloth mask or face covering at all times when at the airport or onboard Alaska aircraft.

If a guest is unwilling or unable to wear a mask for any reason while at the airport, they will not be permitted to travel. If a guest refuses to wear a mask after boarding their flight, they will be suspended from future travel.

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.
