Alaska Airlines Makes Award Booking Easier for Mileage Plan Members
“Alaska Airlines’ partner award travel feature is second to none. I have already booked a one-way award ticket on a partner airline and the entire process was effortless,” said
Customers can now mix and match award shopping in a variety of ways, including shopping for one-way or roundtrip award travel, shopping the award calendars of partner airlines, and combining airlines in one reservation using two types of awards.
The new feature launched on www.alaskaair.com earlier this month, and has already benefited Mileage Plan members booking award travel. Finding award seats on partner airlines during peak travel seasons no longer requires travelers and reservation agents to search market by market and carrier by carrier for empty seats. With a simplified calendar shopping feature, travelers simply enter the origin and destination cities and the month they want to travel, and the site shows seat availability on participating partner airlines for all available classes of service.
“Improving the award process and allowing our members to book one-way and mix-and-match award travel on Alaska Airlines and our partners has been a top priority for Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan for more than a year,” said
Other Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan partners expected to be added to the one-way award feature later this year include:
- Air Pacific
- Cathay Pacific
- Korean Air
Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan offers some of the industry’s most attractive award levels when booking online, with Super Saver Awards starting at 7,500 miles one way and 15,000 miles roundtrip. Additionally, online innovations at alaskaair.com make it easy for customers to see all award-seat options for one-way and roundtrip itineraries on Alaska Airlines, including Saver and Peak award seats, coach and first class seats, and award sale seats.
