Alaska Airlines Review

Updated on December 9, 2011

Alaska Airlines is headquartered in Seattle, Alaska and carries more passengers between the state of Alaska and the Lower 48 than any other airline. Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air, subsidiaries of Alaska Air Group, together serve more than 90 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.

Alaska Air is the 9th largest U.S. airline based on passenger traffic. During recent years, the airline has expanded significantly to serve more U.S. East Coast, Mexican and Canadian destinations. Alaska Airlines offers a friendly and relaxed style of service, one that passengers have come to appreciate as the "Alaska Spirit."

The airline carrier began in 1932, when Linious "Mac" McGee of McGee Airways started flying his three-seat Stinson between Anchorage and Bristol Bay, Alaska. In 1934 a merger with Star Air Service created the largest airline in Alaska, and which eventually became known as Alaska Airlines.

Alaska Air Group owns Alaska Air and Horizon Air.
