Alaska corporation founded in 1932, is noted for its award-winning customer service. Alaska, which accounts for about 80% of Air Group revenues, provides scheduled air service to 59 cities. In addition to its service to destinations in Alaska, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, the airline flies to Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Orlando, Newark, Reagan National in Washington, D.C., and Honolulu, Kona, Lihu’e, and Maui in Hawaii. Alaska also provides service to British Columbia in Canada, and to nine destinations in Mexico. Its hubs are Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. We got our start in a state where aviation is a way of life, not a choice, and where people help each other not because they're supposed to, but because they believe it's the right thing to do. Over the years, much has changed, but our unique heritage continues to serve as our compass point - our own, unique magnetic "North." North of Expected is our way of describing the actions we take every day to provide our customers with an exceptional travel experience, delivered with genuine and caring service, combined with a passion for leveraging technology in meaningful ways that make travel easier. The kind of stuff that makes you stop and think "wow, that was cool". Goodness knows, in these hectic times, we could all use a few more happy surprises.
