 Existing codeshare flights operated by Virgin America, acquired by Alaska Air Group in 2016, on routes serving 19 destinations within the US will also be included under the new agreement. Those destinations are: Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas (Love Field), Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Honolulu, Indianapolis, Kahului, Las Vegas, Nashville, New York (John F Kennedy), Newark, Orlando, Palm Springs, Portland, San Diego, Seattle and Washington (Dulles).

“Our new partnership with Alaska Airlines enables us to improve connectivity between Singapore and the important North American market, providing customers with more codeshare destinations and enhanced KrisFlyer benefits. It reflects our commitment to continuously expand our network reach and offer our customers greater flexibility when planning their travel itineraries,” said Singapore Airlines Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Mr Tan Kai Ping.

Members of Singapore Airlines’ and Alaska Airlines’ frequent flyer programmes, KrisFlyer and Mileage Plan, will also be able to earn miles when travelling on flights operated by either of the two carriers from 27 September 2017.

 KrisFlyer members will be able to redeem miles for Alaska Airlines-operated flights starting from 27 September 2017 while Mileage Plan members will be able to redeem miles for Singapore Airlines-operated flights at a later date. 

“We’re very proud to add an airline of the calibre of Singapore Airlines to our portfolio of Global Partners,” said Mr Andrew Harrison, Chief Commercial Officer for Alaska Airlines. “Our guests will enjoy truly distinctive inflight service when travelling with Singapore Airlines, while also taking full advantage of their Alaska Mileage Plan benefits when travelling from the West Coast to Asia.”

The codeshare flights will be progressively made available through Singapore Airlines’ various booking channels.
