Alaska Airlines has launched a new promotion for Mileage Plan members traveling on Fiji Airways.
Members can save up to 50% on the number of miles required for awards OR earn double miles for flights on the airline.
Note that you must register to earn the bonus miles. The discounted awards should show up in the regular redemption search.
The double miles are valid for flights flown between February 1 – June 30, 2020, in following fare classes: J, C, D, I, Z, Y, B, H, L, O, K, W, Q, S, M, V, G, T, N, or R
You must make your redemption bookings between January 6 – February 29, 2020.
It is unclear from the table above and the T&CS if the discount is also applicable for travel between Australia/New Zealand and Fiji or only from/to North America and Hawaii.
I have been to Fiji once, and it is a lovely destination and relatively close to those living in Australia or New Zealand.
Here are the terms and conditions of the double miles offer:
Offer valid on flights operated and marketed by Fiji Airways and credited to a Member’s Mileage Plan account. Member must register for the promotion at http://www.alaskaair.com/promo/FJ2001 before the first qualifying flight, and book flights for this promotion by February 29, 2020 to receive double miles.
