Flying Home for the Holidays?

Use the best safety protocols, from Alaska Safe Travels.


Get vaccinated. It’s the best way to protect you, your loved ones and your neighbors near and far from the COVID-19 pandemic. Don’t mess around with this. 

The vaccine is safe. It’s free. Click through  to find a vaccine clinic near you.

More and more destinations require that travelers be fully-vaccinated before arrival.


Wearing your mask properly over your nose and mouth is required at all airports in the U.S.  through Mar. 18, 2022.

Not just the airports, though. You have to wear your masks on the planes, too. And on the shuttle buses. Also public transit—including taxis, subways and trains.

Also,  many communities have mask mandates  of their own for interior spaces (including Anchorage).

I rely on KN95 or N95 masks, as they offer the best protection. Bandanas, scarves, baclavas and stretchy buffs are a no-no. 

Masks work—and they’re required if you’re going on a trip. Nobody really loves masks, but they’re a necessary part of a successful COVID mitigation plan.


Pre-travel testing is the best way to limit the spread of COVID-19. Testing is required for many international destinations (vaccinated or not). Also,  when returning to the U.S. from an international destination, a negative test is required (vaccinated or not).

BIG CHANGE at the testing site at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. The COVID-19 testing site at ANC has move beyond security by Starbucks near the C Concourse. That means only ticketed passengers (and airport workers) will be able to get tested at the Anchorage airport location.

Pick up a FREE COVID-19 at-home test to go at the testing station…I did!

Wash your hands. Watch your distance. Stay home if you’re sick.
