CUT TRAVEL COSTS, SUPPORT WPSA, FLY Alaska

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 April 10 to April 18, 2017.

To receive the discount, book your tickets online at http://www.alaskaair.com/ and input the Discount Code (ECMX449) 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: ECMX449.

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 (hprc@pdx.edu) 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 Alaska and Hawaii.
