Alaska Airlines 10,000 Minimum Mileage Plan Miles For Long-Haul Travel From North America March 1 – December 31, 2020


Alaska Airlines has launched a new promotion for Mileage Plan member travel between March 1 – December 31, 2020.

Mileage Plan members will earn a minimum 10,000 miles for long-haul travel from North America with partner airlines.

You can access Alaska’s page for partners here.

Note that Alaska Airlines defines North America as the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean

Here’s the wording on the partner page:

Now, you have 10,000 reasons to say hello to new friends. Starting March 1, 2020, earn a minimum of 10,000 miles round-trip for eligible Global Partner flights between North America and a non-North America destination*.

Here are the eligible airlines:

  • Aer Lingus
  • British Airways
  • Cathay Pacific
  • Condor
  • EL AL Israel Airlines
  • Emirates
  • Fiji Airways
  • Finnair
  • Hainan Airlines
  • Icelandair
  • Japan Airlines
  • Korean Air
  • LATAM Airlines
  • Qantas
  • Singapore Airlines


Mileage Plan will effectively top up the number of award miles earned for those that travel on the most deeply discounted economy fares on partner airlines, which would otherwise earn 25% or 50% credit.

Members who fly on short’ish long-haul flights from North America will benefit from this.

I still wonder how long Alaska can continue offering rather reasonable earning rates with fare class and elite bonuses on most partners? This certainly cannot be sustainable in the long run?

Here are the terms of this offer:

Earn a minimum of 5,000 total miles each way on Aer Lingus, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Condor, EL AL Israel Airlines, Emirates, Fiji Airways, Finnair, Hainan Airlines, Icelandair, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, LATAM Airlines, Qantas and Singapore Airlines flights between North America and a non-North America destination between March 1 and December 31, 2020. North America is defined as the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Any bonus miles added to reach the 5,000 mile minimum do not count toward elite status qualification. Please allow four to six weeks for miles to be credited to your Mileage Plan account.
