As the coronavirus pandemic lingers and more travelers remain cautious, airlines are offering airfare promotions to drive demand for travel. From bonus miles to deep discounts, Alaska Airlines has offered passengers plenty of incentives that should encourage them to get back onto planes.
One notable offer from Alaska Airlines frequent flyer membership is a complimentary round-trip flight for any California resident who enrolls by March 3 – although only applicable within California and only to first responders (police officers, firefighters, EMTs and paramedics), or those working closely with them. Unfortunately this promotion has a maximum cap of 25,000 enrollments as existing Mileage Plan members cannot take part.
Other airlines are also offering attractive deals to entice passengers to book travel, though most discounts are time limited. Southwest Airlines for instance is providing flights starting as low as $29 each way which could appeal to many travellers.
Alaska Airlines provides active military members traveling on orders with complimentary boarding passes and checked bags, while veterans can save 5% by enrolling in Veteran Advantage; veterans also gain access to the Alaska Lounge; plus they may bring up to two pets on flights!
