Alaska Airlines Exceeds Customer Expectations with a Friction-Free Day-of-Travel Experience

The Alaska Airlines mobile app simplifies the traveler’s experience at every touchpoint along their journey — from booking trips to accelerating check-in to delivering quick access to the most up-to-the-minute flight information. It’s one of the reasons the airline has ranked highest in customer satisfaction by J.D. Power for 12 consecutive years.


Alaska Airlines has long been on the forefront of adopting new technologies to improve its operations and deliver better experiences to passengers and employees. As the airline’s customer base became increasingly connected to mobile devices, it saw tremendous opportunities to improve app engagement while streamlining the travel experience, growing revenue and reducing costs.

Alaska Airlines is one of the most popular West Coast air carriers. With the acquisition of Virgin America, it became the fifth largest in the nation, transporting over 47 million passengers annually.

Of Alaska Airlines’ 6.5 million active app users, over half take advantage of mobile check-in, and more than 68% opt in for day-of-travel notifications.
