About Oregon Wines Fly Free
It’s easy to take a taste of Oregon wine country home with you if you’re an Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan member.
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members may check one case of wine (6 or 12 bottles) for free on your Alaska Airlines flight from Eugene, Medford, Portland, Redmond or Walla Walla, WA. To sweeten the deal, we invite you to enjoy a complimentary tasting when you show your in-bound boarding pass (paper or digital) and proof of your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan membership at any of our more than 300 participating wineries.
Here are a few other things we think you’ll want to know…

- Be sure to read the important information below on how to pack your wine for travel

An important note about packing your wine to fly
Wine must be safely packaged for transport in a protective shipping container. The TSA asks that containers not be sealed, but remain open for inspection. Shipping boxes are available at many of the region’s wineries as well as visitor information centers and will vary in price. Please note that it is the responsibility of the Alaska Airlines passenger to be sure the wine is properly packaged for checking as luggage. Advise the Alaska Air 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
