About Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines is an airline based in the Seattle suburb of SeaTac, Washington in the United States. The airline originated in 1932 as McGee Airways. After many mergers with and acquisitions of other airlines, including Star Air Service, it became known as Alaska Airlines in 1944. It has expanded greatly since its founding and now has service not only within the state of Alaska but also throughout the contiguous United States, Canada, Mexico and four Hawaiian Islands.

Classified as a major carrier, it is the seventh-largest US airline in terms of passenger traffic.
