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 (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 Alaska and
