– Editor’s Note:
Passengers with Virgin America tickets check-in with Alaska Airlines beginning tomorrow morning April 25.
– Virgin America will be no more – check-in will be at Alaska Air counters effective April 25
“As of April 25, you will:
* Check-in using one website (alaskaair.com).
* Use one mobile app (Alaska’s).
* Call one call center (Alaska’s).
* Look for Alaska flight numbers.
At the airport, check-in takes place at Alaska’s ticket counters and kiosks. Regardless of where you’re flying, you’ll head for Alaska gates.
On the night of April 24, we’ll complete physical changes at 29 airports around the U.S. and Mexico that are served by both Alaska and Virgin America. The only branding and signage will now be for Alaska Airlines. Signs and screens will all change to Alaska branding at curbside locations, lobbies, ticket counters, gates and baggage areas. While there will be some Virgin America painted aircraft still flying for a period of time after April 25, tickets will be sold only under the Alaska name.
Alaska Airlines and Virgin America are now one airline – and with our regional carrier Horizon Air – we’re one family, all under the Alaska name and brand.”
