Frequently Asked Questions:

How must the wine be packaged?

The wine must be safely packaged for transport in a protective shipping container. The TSA asks that containers not be sealed, but remain open for inspection. Shipping boxes are available at many of the region's wineries as well as visitor information centers and will vary in price. Please note that it is the responsibility of the Alaska Airlines passenger to be sure the wine is properly packaged for checking as luggage. Advise the Alaska Air Customer Service Agent when you check in so the box can be properly labeled with FRAGILE stickers. Items packaged in cardboard boxes are covered in case of loss, but are checked at your own risk for damage. View Alaska Airlines' Check Baggage Policies for more details.

How many cases are allowed?

Each ticketed passenger will be allowed one case to be checked free of charge. Passengers with additional cases will be charged the regular baggage fee.

Can passengers check one case of wine at no charge through to their final destination, even if they are connecting to another airline?

Yes, passengers can check their first case of wine at no charge to their final destination, unless the case is retrieved from baggage and rechecked at any stopover.

Does the Oregon Wines Fly Free program apply to all 50 states and international flights?

The first case free program applies to all out-bound domestic destinations. While the wine can be checked through on international flights, passengers must meet the customs requirements of the destination country.

How do Alaska Airlines passengers redeem their free wine tastings at participating wineries?

At participating wineries that charge a tasting fee, passengers can receive free tastings by presenting their current (within 10 days of arrival) in-bound Alaska Airlines boarding pass. One waived tasting fee is available per boarding pass. *Holiday weekends and special events are excluded.

Can passengers fly in to one of the participating airports and fly out of another?

Yes, as long as both the in-bound and out-bound flights are on Alaska Airlines, passengers may fly into any of the participating airports and out of any.

Is the Oregon Wines Fly Free program permanent?

At this time, the program is set for one year. The results of the program will be evaluated by the three partners who will determine whether it will be renewed or extended.
