UPDATE: Fares fares fares

In Airfares, Alaska Travelgram, Consumer, Shopping by scott

BIG REFRESH in the fare department. Working closely with my friends at USTravel to offer best/brightest in the fare department. We added some city pairs, based on your feedback.

Call Kelly Jo at USTravel if you have any questions on these fares: (907)561-2434 or (800)544-2217.  Check with her for tips on your next cruise, your next international adventure–or just a quick getaway to Hawaii! Remember–your professional travel agents at USTravel charge a ticketing fee ($38 per domestic ticket). That’s because they know what they’re doing and it’s their job to make sure you get the best arrangements. As we all know…that’s often NOT the cheapest. HA

Now we have fares to Santa Rosa, CA  and St. Paul Island–all the hot spots. Guess which is cheaper??

I’ve highlighted the HOT FARES!

All fares listed are roundtrip, including taxes and fees. Updated 3:20pm on Mon., Apr. 18, 2011. I’ve put the airport code in parentheses (ANC). For most of these fares, I used the dates June 1-20, 2011. DATES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. But I wanted to give a better picture of what the early Summer fares look like.

Remember: Fares change by date, by routing and by airline. The lowest fare, as you can imagine, is not always the best fare for you.   As usual,  restrictions apply.  Not all fares are available on all flights. Fares provided by US Travel‘s Anchorage office: (907)561-2434. Do you have some cities you would like added to the list? Aniak? Allentown? Alice Springs? Just drop me a note–I’ll plug ‘em in. I’ll update these next month as other airlines ramp up their schedules. ALSO–IMPORTANT. I picked some dates that worked for me–but if you find some lower fares, please let me know and I’ll post ‘em!
