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
