Alaska Airlines will begin codesharing with Singapore
Airlines on Sept. 27, pending regulatory approval. The two airlines will also
begin a mileage partnership.
Singapore will add its code to 18 Alaska Airlines-operated
flights within the U.S. and to Mexico.
The deal will also incorporate the 19 existing codeshares
that Singapore has on Virgin America-operated U.S. routes. Alaska purchased
Virgin America late last year.
Alaska will not add its code to any Singapore routes under
Singapore flies one-stop to Los Angeles, New York and
Houston and one-stop and nonstop to San Francisco. Along with the Virgin
America routes, Singapore already codeshares within the U.S. on eight United
routes out of Houston and 20 JetBlue flights out of New York.
The Alaska-Singapore agreement will enable Alaska Mileage
Plan members and Singapore KrisFlyer members to earn miles on flights operated
by either airline. KrisFlyer members will also be able to redeem miles for
Alaska-operated flights beginning Sept. 27. The two airlines said Mileage Plan
members will be able to use their miles for a Singapore Airlines flight at an
unspecified later date.
