Frequently Asked Questions:
How must the wine be packaged?
The 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

How many cases are allowed?
Each Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan member with an outbound ticket
will be allowed one case (6 or 12 bottles) to be checked free of
charge. Passengers with additional cases will be charged the
regular baggage fee.
Can passengers check one case of wine at no charge through to
their final destination, even if they are connecting to another
Yes, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan passengers can check their
first case of wine (6 or 12 bottles) at no charge to their final
destination, unless the case is retrieved from baggage and
rechecked at any stopover.
Does the Oregon Wines Fly Free program apply to all 50 states
and international flights?
The first case free program applies to all out-bound domestic
destinations. While the wine can be checked through on
international flights, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan passengers must

Alaska Airlines flights out of four Oregon airports (Eugene,

How do Alaska Airlines passengers redeem their free wine
tastings at participating wineries?
At participating wineries that charge a tasting fee, passengers
can receive free tastings by presenting their current (within 10
days of arrival) in-bound Alaska Airlines boarding pass. One waived
tasting fee is available per boarding pass. *Holiday weekends and
special events are excluded.
Can passengers fly in to one of the participating airports and
fly out of another?
Yes, as long as both the in-bound and out-bound flights are on
Alaska Airlines, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan passengers may fly
into and out of participating airports.
Is the Oregon Wines Fly Free program permanent?
The program is currently set to run through April 2015, however
we hope to extend it after that point in time.
