Alaska Airlines Partners

Alaska Airlines is becoming a very popular airline, so I thought I’d look deeper into the value of its loyalty program, Mileage Plan. Though Alaska Airlines is not a member of any airline alliance, it does have several significant partners for codesharing and elite qualifications.

Codesharing means that you can buy a partner airline flight and still earn Mileage Plan points. It essentially operates very similarly as if it were a member of an airline alliance. As a result, it makes it easier to have connecting flights because of its partnership coordination with several other airlines. Alaska Airlines has the following codeshare partners

  • AeroMexico
  • Air France
  • American Airlines
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Fiji Airways
  • KLM
  • Korean Air
  • LAN
  • PenAir
  • Qantas
  • Ravn Alaska

Elite qualifying partners are the partners where if you fly with them, the points you earn will count towards qualifying for elite status with Mileage Plan. This can be very valuable when chasing elite status. Alaska has the following elite qualifying partners:

  • Aeromexico
  • Air France
  • American Airlines
  • British Airways
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Emirates
  • Fiji Airways
  • KLM
  • Korean Air
  • LAN
  • PenAir
  • Qantas
  • Ravn Alaska

Lastly, when you have accumulated a lot of points, you can redeem your points on certain partner airlines, the list is as follows:

  • American Airlines
  • Aeromexico
  • Air France
  • British Airways
  • Cathay Pacific (call Alaska Airlines for reservations – 1-800-252-7522)
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Emirates
  • Fiji Airways
  • KLM
  • Korean Air
  • LAN (call Alaska Airlines for reservations – 1-800-252-7522)
  • PenAir
  • Qantas
  • Ravn Alaska

As you can see, the list is slightly different from one category to another, so watch the list carefully when planning your trip accordingly.
