REDUCED RATES ON ALASKA AIRLINES
The WPSA has signed an agreement again this year with Alaska Airlines
to provide members with reduced rates for our annual meeting.
If you book your flight with Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air, you
will receive a 7% discount off the lowest published fare (the
deal excludes companion and other promotional fares). In addition,
the program provides financial benefits for the association, so
we encourage members to fly Alaska. The discount applies from
March 30 to April 7, 2015. Unfortunately, the discount does not
apply for the holiday weekend dates of April 3 to 5. However,
the Association still receives credit if you fly on those days,
so please still use the discount code. Las Vegas is served by
many airlines, but consider taking Alaska.
To receive the discount, book your tickets online at http://www.alaskaair.com/
and input the Discount Code when searching for flights. You can
also book your flight through the Alaska Airlines Group desk at
1-800-445-4435, though a $15.00 per person ticketing fee will
apply for phone reservations. The discount code is: ECMV818.
In addition, if you purchase an Alaska Airline ticket to attend
the conference but do not use the code, please send a note to
Richard Clucas (firstname.lastname@example.org) letting him know. Include the names
of the travelers and their ticket numbers in your note. The association
can still receive credit for your travel.
As with any deal, there is some small print. If you change or
cancel your flight after ticketing, a service charge will likely
apply. The discount is available from any U.S. or Canadian city
served by Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air, excluding Hawaii and
Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
