Big Changes and Improvements Coming to Alaska Air Cargo
Learn about exciting efforts underway – starting with new, larger freighters and a new technology suite that will improve processes.
More Shipping for Alaska
Two additional new 737-800 freighters are joining our fleet. This will almost double our shipping capacity for the state of Alaska. The most fuel-efficient aircraft serving the intra-Alaska market, the 737-800 will be able to fly nonstop from remote Alaska markets to Seattle.

Prep for Service
The new 737-800 aircraft provides 40% more capacity per plane and more loading space per departure than our 737-700 fleet, essentially doubling our total freighter capacity.
Five Freighters in the Fleet
We’ll be able to offer more dedicated cargo flights as our fleet expands to three 737-700s and two 737-800s.
Maximum payload: 40,000 lbs.
Maximum payload: 50,000 lbs.

New Technology Will Streamline Cargo Operations
Our new full-service cargo management system, iCargo, will improve internal operations and make it easier for our customers to work with us. Unifying many separate technology systems into one seamless system, iCargo will provide an end-to-end view of all cargo activities.
When Will the iCargo System Be Up and Running?
We are on track to launch the new iCargo system in October. That said, software and technology implementations are never perfectly predictable. Please check back often for updates and resources as we get closer to launching this new system. We are committed to regularly communicating about changes and look forward to working together through the transitions.
