Alaska Airlines Lounge Access Changes in 2024
Alaska Airlines is increasing the price for its Alaska Lounge memberships and will also restrict access for some members.
Starting February 1, 2024, Alaska Airlines’ annual lounge membership will increase in price by as much as $100. The standard Alaska Lounge Membership, which includes access to 9 Alaska Airlines Lounges, will increase by $50. It will cost $450 for elites and $550 for non-elites.
The Alaska Lounge+ Membership which expand your access to Alaska-operated Lounges and more than 90 partner lounges, will increase in price by $100. It will cost $650 for elites and $750 for non-elites.
Eligible Alaska personal and business cardholders will continue to receive $100 off an Alaska Lounge+ membership.
Alaska Airlines will also add new restrictions. Only members flying on a same-day Alaska or partner ticket will be able to access lounges. This is a big change from the current policy where a membership gives you lounge access regardless of the airline you’re flying with.
Some things are remaining the same. Members with continue to have guest access, and day passes will remain at $30 each.
Alaska MVP® Gold, Gold 75K, and Gold 100K members also get lounge access when they travel on a oneworld® member airline to a destination outside of the US, Canada, or Mexico.
