Holidays take flight at Alaska Airlines

Bake the gingerbread, light the menorah, hang the stockings — however you holiday — joy & care is in the air at Alaska Airlines. As the ‘Merrier Carrier’ we’re going all out this year to celebrate and can’t wait to share this holiday season with our loyal guests and employees.

Cup, cup and away!

Holidays take flight at Alaska Airlines

Holiday spirit is IN THE AIR today at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, as we unveiled our newest special-edition aircraft featuring one of our favorite hometown friends, Starbucks. The plane, tail number N238AK, showcases Starbucks famous red cups filled with their signature holiday drinks. The Boeing 737-900ER made its inaugural flight from Seattle (SEA) to Chicago (ORD) this morning and will fly throughout the network this holiday season.

And because you can’t have too much cheer – Starbucks and Alaska will provide 50 flights with reusable holiday cups and treats through Dec.12. Alaska will also offset the carbon impacts of these flights through The Good Traveler program, as part of our commitment to be carbon net-zero by 2040.

Like coffee, travel is better together with friends and family, so we’ve teamed up with Starbucks to help our guests “BOGO all the way!” Buy one Alaska ticket and get one for just the taxes and fees by using code STARBUCKS. Hurry – deal ends at midnight PST today! Go to to book and for full offer terms and conditions.

May your days be cozy {and bright}
