What is The Business Travel PAC?

Business Travel PAC is the bipartisan GBTA USA Political Action Committee or PAC. As the only federally recognized PAC representing the business travel industry, it gives the industry another voice in the political process.

Through Business Travel PAC, GBTARM members join with other GBTA members across the country to educate and financially support members of Congress who understand the value of business travel and support pro-business travel interests.

Alaska continuously ranks in the top three for low airfare, best on-time arrival rates, highest customer satisfaction, best baggage handling and a best-in-the-industry frequent flyer program.  How? The team at Alaska is committed to creating an airline people love. They are starting off 2018 with substantial investments in their products, services and network to become the West Coast’s preferred airline – they currently offer the most West Coast nonstop destinations of any airline.

On behalf of the dedicated and kind-hearted flight attendants, highly skilled pilots, friendly customer service agents, talented maintenance technicians, and those of us that support them behind the scenes, thanks for flying Alaska.
