The carrier,  which has a reputation for embracing new technology, plans to add self-bag tagging kiosks at the South Florida airport in the near future as it continues to rollout the new service system-wide.

The airline has also rolled out its Flight Status On the Go feature that enables customers to text 252752 (ALASKA) for up-to-date flight status information, including arrival and departure times and gate information.
