This is the summer to invite your friends and relatives to visit Alaska, and Alaska Airlines is making it cheaper than ever before.

Through a new partnership between Alaska Airlines and the Alaska Travel Industry Association and its community partners, Alaska Airlines is offering up to 21 percent off flights in May and June during a six-day sale from March 30 through April 4. On days that don't qualify for the 21 percent savings, they are still offering a 10 percent discount on regular fares.

To book the special fares, go to and enter the promo code TRAVEL2AK21.

The discount is a way to boost the Alaska tourism industry that has suffered through the pandemic. All tourism businesses were impacted by low visitation numbers in 2020, and with the cancellation of cruises in 2021, independent travelers will make up the bulk of the visitors to Alaska. Alaska businesses are committed to providing enhanced safety and cleaning protocols to ensure that visitors have a safe and healthy experience. For a directory of Mat-Su businesses who have pledged enhanced protocols, visit our Covid page.

Invite your friends and relatives this summer - they'll save some money, get to see Alaska and you'll help the local economy and small businesses.
