  • Other airline employees will not be charged for the first two checked bags. However, non-revs must pay all excess and overweight charges. Each bag must weigh 50 pounds or less and have a maximum dimension of 45 linear inches (length + height + width) to avoid additional charges. Baggage charges can be paid at the ticket counter.

Cabin baggage

  • The carry-on bag size limit for flights has changed to 22'' x 14'' x 9'' - these dimensions include the wheels and handles. Be sure to measure your bag carefully before you fly. You'll still be allowed one carry-on bag and one personal item such as a purse, briefcase, or laptop bag. To help make the boarding process as smooth as possible for everyone, make sure that your items are within the size limits described below, so they'll fit into the overhead bin or under the seat in front of you.
  • Note: Every effort will be made to accommodate your carry-on in the passenger cabin. Acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability on the aircraft at the time you board. In the event adequate space is not available, your carry-on bag may be checked for no charge to baggage claim at your final destination.

Special service requests



  • The AVIH (Animal in Hold)/ PETC (Pet in Cabin) fee applies to other airline non-revenue travelers. Passengers must be 18 years old to travel with PETC. All health requirements need to be met for the animal. Pets will be tagged standby and when the non-revenue passenger clears the flight the animal is also cleared. Do not call to list the animal. It is suggested that you contact Alaska Reservations to check the number of confirmed Pets on the flight as there is a limited number of animals in the cabin.  

Second Seat Policy

  • The requirement of being able to fit within one seat with the armrests in the down position will apply to every passenger on our aircraft including non-revenue passengers. However, our non-revenue passengers will not be required to purchase an additional seat. All non-revenue passengers are required to advise the gate agent of their need for a second seat at the gate. If they do, the second seat will be blocked based on their boarding priority code. Since other airline travelers are not charged for the second seat, a courtesy block will be used on the adjacent seat.


  • Our meal service has been suspended due to COVID. Pre-ordering meals are not allowed for leisure or duty travel at this time. We hope to offer meals again soon. 

Seat requests

  • In all instances, standby passengers should sit in their assigned seat and not request that other passengers relocate for your convenience. There is a possible chance that you and your party may be separated on the plane, so either prepare for this or take another flight that would better accommodate your needs.

Infant safety seats

  • Lap infants sharing a seat with their parent may bring a child restraint seat on board provided there is an empty seat available for the infant. If the flight is full, the car seat will be checked at the gate using a claim-at-gate tag. The car seat will be returned to you at the gate upon arrival. All car seats must be FAA approved for aircraft use.

Unaccompanied minors

Children under the age of 18 may not travel alone on Alaska, Horizon or Skywest. 

  • Under 16 years not permitted to travel alone on a ZED ticket.

Useful extra information

Back-up tickets

  • Because all non-revenue pleasure travel is "standby", flexibility is key. Know what different flight options you have to get you to your destination will help you plan for sudden changes such as full flights, flight cancellations, and delays. One idea is to print out your options and take them with you.
