Alaska Airlines and Singapore Airlines today announced that they will commence codeshare and frequent flier partnership effective on September 27, 2017.
Mileage Plan and KrisFlyer members can earn miles on each others flights effective on this date and redeeming will become available later this fall.
You can access Alaska’s page for Singapore Airlines here.
Here are the fare classes eligible for accrual:
Note that lowest economy fare classes are not eligible for accrual with Alaska.
Only flights that are both operated and marketed by Singapore Airlines are eligible for Mileage Plan credit.
There is a range of flight number listed on Alaska’s website that would be eligible at the moment that is likely incorrect because that would exclude Singapore Airlines US flights.
Qualify for mileage accrual
Flights must fall within the eligible flight number range below, and your flight must be marketed and operated by Singapore Airlines.
Eligible flight numbers
Singapore Airlines was partner with Virgin America so they are merely moving the partnership to Alaska in a sense.
You shouldn’t expect to be able to redeem Mileage Plan miles for Singapore Airlines first class flights outside of regional flights to perhaps Jakarta and Manila. Also, business class won’t be available on updated cabins using most partner programs.
It is good, however, always to have more partners where one is able to earn and burn miles.
Singapore Airlines has not yet announced their KrisFlyer earning rates for Alaska’s flights. I will have separate post up once they do.
