Two standard-sized bags may be checked in for $25 each, with each additional bag costing $75, as of April 2015. A standard bag is one that weighs 50 pounds or less and measures no more than 62 linear inches. This is calculated by adding the length, height and width of a bag. Additional fees, $75 per bag as of this writing, are charged for oversized or overweight bags. Some flights and/or destinations only allow standard bags.

Passengers on stopover flights may also have to pay additional fees. On domestic flights, if a stopover is 12 hours or more, passengers must pay a second baggage fee. On international Alaska Airline flights, passengers stopping over for 24 hours or more must also pay the additional fee.

Passenger confirmation letters specify if other baggage rules apply to a particular routing or flight. This sometimes happens on code share flights, where a passenger has a connecting flight booked on an Alaska Airlines ticket but one leg of the fight is on a partner carrier. The Baggage Overview section also provides information on prohibited items and baggage fee exceptions.
