PASCO, Wash. — In preparation for a brand new route that will expand service across a variety of the Northwest’s top viticultural regions, aha! airlines will allow passengers to fly with wine without charge this summer.

According to an announcement from aha!, the ‘wine flies free’ program waives any fees for bringing a box of wine on the plane with you. This is just ahead of the airline’s brand new route to Reno-Tahoe in addition to routes in Washington, Oregon and California.
