Alaska Airlines

The following baggage policies are shown as they appear on Alaska Airlines’ website. Your Vacations To Go travel counselor can answer any additional questions you may have.

Carry-On Baggage

The maximum dimensions for your carry-on bag are:

Starting June 4, 2018, the carry-on bag size limit for Alaska Airlines, Horizon, and SkyWest flights will change to 22'' x 14'' x 9''

For additional carry-on items beyond the one-bag limit, each piece will incur a fee. We'll take care of tagging these items and ensuring they're delivered to the baggage claim at your final destination.

We'll make every effort to accommodate your carry-on items in the passenger cabin. Acceptance of carry-on baggage is subject to space availability on the aircraft at the time you board. In the event that adequate space isn't available, we'll check your carry-on bag through to your final destination, free of charge.

These items may be brought onboard without counting toward your carry-on limit.
