Easy-Breezy Global Travel: Verify your Passport from Home with Alaska Airlines’ Mobile Verify

With just a couple quick photos, you can securely verify your passport before arriving at the airport. Which means less time waiting in line at the airport to verify your documents.

Every traveler leaving or entering the United States is required to have their passport verified by their airline. Guests traveling internationally on Alaska flights and using U.S. or Canadian passports have the option to use the new Mobile Verify program. This means no longer needing to wait in line in the lobby or at the gate to have a customer service agent check your documents — you can take care of this step safely and securely from the comfort of your home ahead of time.

Alaska Airline’s is transforming the airport experience and reimagining how guests get from the lobby to the boarding door — and the use of biometric identities is at the center of this vision. Eventually, guests will be able to flow through every airport touchpoint without having to take out identification documents, simply by controlling their digital identity on their smart phone.

The Mobile Verify platform, powered by Airside, an Onfido company, is just the latest tool Alaska Airline’s is implementing to build the vision where everyone has access to self-service tools that lets them fly through the lobby and get to their flight faster.
