Alaska Airlines’ newest Mileage Plan promotion offers members the chance to earn double miles on international trips.
The promotion provides double miles on qualifying economy fares for trips on any of 10 international partner carriers that participate in Mileage Plan. The carriers are British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Fiji Airways, Hainan Airlines, Icelandair, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, LAN and Qantas.
Qualifying international flights depart from West Coast cities including Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego, Portland and Vancouver.
Participants must register for the promotion here; the page also shows the qualifying routes and fare classes. The offer applies to international travel from June 1 through September 30.
The travel industry news site Skift.com suggested that the promotion is likely targeted at the growing number of Virgin Atlantic regulars who are transitioning to Mileage Plan, to make them aware of the global connecting possibilities on Alaska’s partner airlines.
