Alaska Airlines has launched Flight Pass, the first-ever flight subscription for West Coast travel. Flight Pass members can choose from 100 daily flights between 16 West Coast cities. The pass can be used on round-trip travel throughout California and for nonstop service from California to Phoenix, Reno, and Las Vegas.
One-way and multi-segment bookings are currently not available under Flight Pass. The standard Flight Pass plan, which requires booking at least 14 days before travel, starts at $49 per month. Meanwhile, the Flight Pass Pro plan, which allows same-day booking up to two hours before departure, starts at $199 per month. Both annual programs allow flight bookings to be made up to 90 days in advance.
Alaska Airlines subscription service comes as most Americans plan domestic travel in 2022, mainly to warm-weather and beach destinations. The top searched domestic destinations include Orlando, Destin, Gatlinburg–Pigeon Forge, Panama City, and Maui. In contrast, the top searched international destinations include Riviera Maya/Playa del Carmen/Tulum, Rome, Bali, London, and Paris.
