Alaska Air: last day to save

In Airfares, Alaska Travelgram by scott

Fly between now and June 18, 2010. But you must purchase by this eve (Apr 2). Low fares are available from most Alaska Airlines jet cities, including Kodiak, Cordova, Adak, Fairbanks, Barrow, Kotzebue, Juneau, Anchorage, etc. Here is a rundown of some of my favorite destinations and rates. I’m quoting roundtrip, including all taxes and fees.

But all of Alaska Airlines‘ fares are one-way. So you can mix-n-match. You can use miles for an award ticket in one direction, or return from a different city. And there’s no minimum stay (but you do have to complete travel by June 18 at these prices).

Be sure you’re signed up for Alaska’s mileage plan before you travel (I am). Also, charge your trip on the Alaska Airlines Visa card (I do). If you don’t have a card, apply here and get 25,000 bonus miles when you’re approved. I wish I could say I got those miles–but I only got 5,000 miles as a bonus when I signed up. Remember–you get a $99 companion ticket with the Visa card each year. That’s worth the $75 annual fee, IMHO.

Back to business. Here are some of my favorite fares. Go to to shop for your city.
