Remember that languid moose strolling through the opening credits of Northern Exposure back in the early 90s? (Classic!) Though filmed in Roslyn, Washington, the show heightened my interest in visiting Alaska, and an episode featuring the aurora borealis peaked my wanderlust. Fast forward to 2011, and my interest in the last frontier is back, baby!
Alaska Air’s iPhone app has everything you need to arrange your transportation. All the standard features you’d expect from a great travel app are present and accounted for: mobile boarding pass options, text & email flight alerts, gate & boarding time info, flight check-in, seat-changing options, etc. But the app also has handy & unique features, including a personal travel concierge who can set parking reminders, remember hotel & car confirmation codes, and remind you of specific day-of-travel resources to help you skip those long lines at the airport. And for peace of mind, all benefits of Alaska Air’s website are easily accessible.
Our 49th state is one of those distinctive places you have to make a special effort to see. Thanks to Alaska Air’s iPhone app, the special effort feels fairly effortless. But Alaska Airlines isn’t just all about the last frontier. As we just learned, they’re actually based out of Seattle, and are the U.S.’s 8th largest carrier with flights in and out of U.S., Canada, and Mexico. All aboard!
