Alaska & Virgin America get joint AOC

The FAA has issued the joint airline its AOC as a first stage in the practical and material integration of the airlines.

Both companies were at pains to point out that for the next few months nothing will change, and apps and websites will not be integrated fully until March-April.

Physical changes such as uniforms and marketing materials, training manuals and so on may take far longer, but airport signage and marketing materials should be done by The end of March.

Both airlines are committed to keeping passengers and staff fully informed of how things have changed and what to do next.
