Alaska Airlines and Uber reported they are partnering to offer free rides to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Dec. 23 and 24.
During the two-day promotion, Alaska Airlines will pay for one ride, up to USD50, to shuttle travelers to the airport in comfortable town cars.
“Holiday travel can be stressful, so we´re excited to bring a little joy to the season by making it really easy for customers to get to the airport and begin their holiday vacations,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines´ vice president of marketing.

After entering their credit card information, travelers can request a ride to Sea-Tac Airport from their current location. During the two-day special, Uber rides will be charged to Alaska Airlines and, as is customary for Uber riders, no tipping or cash is necessary.
