Flying With Wine

Did you know that Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan™ members may check up to one case of wine for free on any domestic flight from Eugene, Medford, Portland, Redmond or Walla Walla, WA? 

A few tips for success: Pack your wine in a case or box that contains bubble wrap or other packaging material to protect the glass during the trip. Note that Alaska Airlines has partnered with The Wine Check™ to create special wine packaging in conjunction with the program, and Newberg Mail Room also sells wine shipping materials. Inform your customer service agent at check-in that you’re carrying wine and ask for a FRAGILE sticker. And when you get home, wait at least a week before enjoying your bottles—“bottle shock” is like jet lag for wine! See more tips and information here.
