Passengers to Spokane will be able to present their Alaska Airlines boarding pass and pay no tasting fees. The Cork District is focused in the urban core of Downtown Spokane and features fifteen award-winning wineries within walking distance of one other.

- The boarding pass that comes from the kiosk
- A boarding pass printed from home on a regular piece of paper
- The electronic boarding pass found on a smartphone

How do I pack my wine to fly?
1. The wine must be packed and sealed for transport in a protective shipping container.
2. Let the Alaska Airlines customer service agent know you’re checking a case of wine so that they can label your box “FRAGILE.”
3. The TSA reserves the right to open your container to check the contents, but will reseal it after inspection.
4. Items packaged in a cardboard box are covered in case of loss, but are checked at your own risk for damage. See the Alaska Airlines baggage policy for more details.
