Alaska Airlines & Qatar Airways Frequent Flier Partnership Launch December 15, 2020

Alaska Airlines is joining the Oneworld Alliance that will take place on March 31, 2021. Mileage Plan members can earn and redeem miles on all alliance airlines from that date.

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan and Qatar Airways Privilege are launching miles earnings on each other’s flights from December 15, 2020, and redemptions on the date Alaska joins the Oneworld.

You can access Alaska’s page for Qatar Airways miles earnings here.

Alaska Airlines and Qatar Airways will also codeshare each other’s flights.

Qatar’s four weekly flights from Doha to Seattle on March 15, 2021:

Seattle Flight Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday

  • Doha (DOH) to Seattle (SEA) QR719 departs: 08:00 arrives: 12:20
  • Seattle (SEA) to Doha (DOH) QR720 departs: 17:05 arrives: 17:15+1

Alaska’s Qatar Airways earnings:


You have to remember that you earn elite status bonus miles on all Alaska’s partners, making crediting premium-class flights to Mileage Plan very lucrative (up to 475% on flown miles on Qatar’s first for MVP 75K members).

I’ll probably move most of my Oneworld flight credits to Alaska’s Mileage Plan unless there are negative changes to the program before joining the alliance.

Let’s see what Alaska’s Oneword award chart will look like.
