Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines has started operations at its brand-new location at San Francisco International Airport’s (SFO) recently-opened Harvey Milk Terminal 1. 

The airline’s new home at SFO opened its check-in gates and systems to passengers on June 19, 2024, following a two-year relocation period from Terminal 2.

The complete transition to Harvey Milk Terminal 1, including the opening of the airline’s lounge, is set to take place in July 2024. 

Alaska Airlines’ multi-million dollar investment to move to Harvey Milk Terminal 1 has made it the largest operating carrier in the terminal.

Alaska said the move has allowed the airline to be closer to fellow oneworld airline members and additional global partners and will provide guests with seamless connectivity to their next domestic or international flight. 

The airline said its transition to Harvey Milk Terminal 1 has come just in time for its busiest travel months of the year.

Alaska Airlines is also the first airline at the terminal to debut the use of automated bag drops to process checked bags. 

“Our new home in San Francisco International Airport’s Harvey Milk Terminal 1 delivers a world class experience that our guests will love while supporting our goals of innovation, sustainability and long-term growth,” Shane Jones, Senior Vice President of fleet and real estate at Alaska Airlines, said in a statement.

“We’re excited to make this move for the approximately 5 million passengers we serve at SFO each year and that this positions us for future growth at our largest hub in California,” Jones said.

The $30 million relocation project to Harvey Milk Terminal 1 is part of Alaska Airlines’ larger $3 billion infrastructure investment to enhance the guest experience at major hubs along the West Coast of the US. 

The airline also said it will be moving into the brand-new, bolder and brighter lobby at Portland International Airport (PDX) in August 2024. 

A complete overhaul of Alaska Airlines gates at Terminal 6 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX),where Alaska is the primary airline, will be completed by the end of July 2024.
