Alaska companion pass
I have an AS companion certificate set to expire on 12/31 this year. Can I book flights for 2021 with this, or does the pass have to be used on flights for this year?
From the Alaska website:
[SIZE=3][B]Do I have to travel by the expiration date on my companion fare code?[/B][/SIZE]
The expiration date listed on your companion fare code indicates the date by which you must redeem your companion fare code and purchase your fare. [B]Your companion fare code must be redeemed by 11:59 pm PT on the expiration date. Once ticketed, travel can be completed after the expiration date — within 12 months of the date of issue.[/B]
You can view your companion fare code’s expiration date by logging into your [URL=’https://www.alaskaair.com/www2/ssl/myalaskaair/MyAlaskaAir.aspx’]My account[/URL] profile and viewing the “Discount and companion fare codes” section. The expiration date cannot be extended, and once your discount code has expired, it cannot be exchanged.
