How do I get a complimentary tasting?

At participating wineries who normally charge a tasting fee, passengers can enjoy a free tasting by presenting their current (within 10 days of arrival) in-bound Alaska Airlines boarding pass and proof of membership in the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan. One waived tasting fee is available per boarding pass per winery. Holiday weekends and special events are excluded.

At which airports can I check a case of wine for free?

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members may check a case of wine for free on Alaska Airlines flights departing from Idaho, Washington, Oregon or California to their final destination in the United States.

How must the wine be packaged?

The wine must be safely packaged for transport in a protective shipping container (wine shipping box/they are cardboard or styrofoam). The TSA asks containers not be sealed, but remain open for inspection. Shipping boxes are available at many of the wineries, wine shops and shipping providers such as U-Haul. They may vary in price.

Please note it is the responsibility of the Alaska Airlines passenger to be sure the wine is properly packaged for checking as luggage. Advise the Alaska Airlines Customer Service Agent when you check in so the box can be properly labeled with FRAGILE stickers. Items packaged in cardboard boxes are covered in case of loss, but are checked at your
own risk for damage. View Alaska Airlines’ Checked Baggage Policies for more details.

How many cases are allowed?

Each Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan member aged 21 and over with an outbound ticket will be allowed one (1) case of up to 12 bottles to be checked free of charge. Passengers with additional cases will be charged the regular baggage fee.

Does the Alaska Airlines Wines Fly Free program apply event when connecting to another airline?

The free case can be checked from a Wines Fly Free airport to any final destination in the U.S. even when connecting to another airline. If baggage is retrieved and rechecked at any stopover point, standard baggage fees will apply.
