For skiers in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, this latest deal from Alaska Airlines is great news. Called Flight Pass, guests pay $49 per month for discounted main fair rates and earn points for every mile flown.
Main cabin fares will be as low as $14.61 one-way, and the subscriptions include no change fees.
Additionally, those who subscribe now get MVP or MVP Gold Status through 2023. The subscription model services many major California airports, along with Phoenix and Las Vegas. Until recently, it served business travelers and those looking for warm escapes during the cold months.
That was until last week when Alaska Airlines announced they’d added Salt Lake City International Airport to the Flight Pass. For Californians, it provides an option to shred the powder in the winter, and hike and bike during the summer.
For Utahans, it gives them the option to make frequent California trips for business and leisure. A forewarning to Californians who’ve never gone to SLC International Airport: get ready for a long walk through the infamous tunnel.
Neil Thwaites, who is the Alaska Airlines regional vice president of California operations, said the following about the new addition:
“Utah is a popular ski and outdoor recreation destination among our California subscribers, and we’re happy to now make those trips more affordable and accessible with Flight Pass. We’re also excited to introduce Flight Pass to Utah and provide Salt Lake City travelers with an affordable option for their frequent travel to California.”
