Alaska Airlines said it would continue to block all middle seats on mainline flights and maintain reduced loads on regional flights through at least October 31, 2020 as the travel industry continues to struggle with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The airline will also require all passengers over the age of two to wear face masks, with no exceptions.  The mask requirement is in effect at ticket counters, gate areas, and on board the aircraft.

“As our guests begin to make decisions on when flying feels right to them, we’re looking for new and creative ways to show that our care is always there,” said Sangita Woerner, the airline’s senior vice president of guest experience.

In addition, flight attendants will continue to issue the so-called yellow card final notices to passengers who repeatedly disregard the mask requirement and suspend travel when the passenger continues not to be in compliance.
