Social distancing promo Alaska Airlines.......


Whilst most of the major U.S. airlines air still keeping the middle sear free for the safety of passengers and help to ensure social distancing onboard aircraft. The carrier Alaska Airlines is bucking the trend, by offering the entire row for just one passenger! 

The airline's 'Get the Row with BOGO' promo is back! Running through to October 31st passengers can buy a seat and then buy a second one on the same flight for just the taxes and fees and with the middle seat free, 

"Our hope is that with this offer, as well as our Next-Level Care and middle seat blocking through Oct. 31, our guests are given further peace of mind while traveling to our more than 115 destinations this fall," said Sangita Woerner, Alaska Airlines' senior vice president of marketing and guest experience. "We have added layers of safety to keep our guests and employees safe when they are ready to fly, and hope to see many of them in the skies in the coming months."



Extending physical distancing on board for fall travel with blocked middle seats on all mainline flights and reduced capacity on regional flights through Oct. 31*.
Strengthening face mask policies, including:
Requiring all guests over the age of two to wear a mask or face covering, with no exceptions. If a traveler does not wear a mask, they will not be allowed to fly. This policy applies to anywhere Alaska conducts business – at ticket counters, gate areas and inflight.
In late June, Alaska empowered its flight attendants to issue a final notice to any guest – in the form of a yellow card handed to them – who repeatedly disregards or disobeys the requirement to wear a mask or face covering. If a guest still does not comply after that warning, their travel with Alaska will be suspended immediately instead of undergoing a review process.
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.
Continuing enhanced cabin cleaning procedures that exceed CDC guidelines, including cleaning between flights, using electrostatic disinfectant sprayers for a next-level clean.
Extending flexible travel policies, with Peace of Mind waivers that allow for no change or cancellation fees for flights booked through Dec. 31, if travelers' plans should change**


* Blocked middle seats are only available on Alaska Airlines flights 1-1999. Our regional aircraft do not have middle seats. An open middle seat is not guaranteed. Certain occasions, such as aircraft changes or re-accommodating guests from a previously canceled flight, may require guests to be seated next to someone not in their party.  If you're uncomfortable with the distance between you and others on your date of travel, please speak with a customer service agent about your options.

** Change and cancellation fees are waived for all tickets purchased through December 31, 2020, and on January 1, 2021, we will be eliminating change fees permanently. Learn more about our flexible travel policy.
