Learn how to add baggage to your Alaska Airlines flight. You can add checked baggage online, at the airport kiosk, or during booking. Bag fees apply.

To add baggage to your Alaska Airlines flight, you have a few options. If you have already booked your flight, you can add checked baggage during online check-in, which is available from 1 to 24 hours before your flight. You can easily pay for your checked baggage charges online with a credit or debit card and then bring your bags to the baggage-check location at the airport[1].

Alternatively, you can pay for checked baggage at the airport using a check-in kiosk or at any of Alaska Airlines‘ airport ticket counters[2]. If you have not yet booked your flight, you can include checked baggage when making your reservation.

The standard fee for checked bags is $30 for the first bag, $40 for the second, and $100 for the third[3]. Size and weight limits apply, with a maximum weight of 50 pounds and a maximum linear dimension of 62 inches (length + width + height) [4].

If you have an Alaska Airlines Visa credit card, you can enjoy the benefit of your first checked bag being free[3]. Elite-level Mileage Plan members and passengers confirmed in first class at check-in also get their first and second checked bags free[3]. Active duty military personnel and their dependents on travel orders are eligible for up to five free checked bags[3].
