Korean Air and Alaska Airlines have entered into a codeshare agreement and expanded frequent flier partnership that will allow members to earn and redeem miles in either Korean Air's or Alaska Airlines' frequent flier program.

Customers can take advantage of the new partnership from Korean Air's West Coast gateways of Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco, with connecting flights from other points throughout the Pacific Northwest. The agreement starts August 1, and customers can begin earning and redeeming miles starting September 3.

"This new codeshare agreement will significantly benefit customers traveling from the Pacific Northwest and California to Asia and other international destinations, taking advantage of Korean Air's extensive network," said Brad Tilden, Alaska Airlines executive vice president of finance and planning and chief financial officer. "Customers will be able to purchase a single ticket, check bags only once and enjoy convenient connections to their final Korean Air destination, while also earning Mileage Plan frequent flier miles."

This is the fifth partnership that Korean Air shares with U.S. carriers. Other partnerships are with Delta, Northwest, Continental and Hawaiian Airlines.
