IT’s confirmed, subject to final approval by the relevant parties, Alaska Airlines will acquire Virgin America.

Alaska has that personal touch that many airlines lack. As a registered customer of the airline, it is nice to receive this message :

“As one of our most valued customers, we wanted to be the first to share with you some exciting news that Alaska Airlines is acquiring Virgin America, combining two leading airlines both known for low fares and award-winning customer service. With complimentary West Coast-based networks, operational excellence and a strong commitment to innovation, the joining of Virgin America and Alaska will expand our existing California footprint and grow our transcontinental network, giving you more travel options with 1,200 daily departures nationwide.

We’ll keep you updated on the timing and plan for integrating our two airlines.”

So, congratulations, Alaska Airlines!

Both airlines will continue to fly their individual identity until the single operating certificate is issued when the combined entity will be known as Alaska Airlines.
