In early May, Alaska Airlines and Japan Airlines announced that they’d launch a partnership as of June 29, 2016.
I love Alaska Mileage Plan, largely thanks to the variety of partner airlines they have. It’s a great way to earn a mileage currency which can be accrued and redeemed for travel on airlines spanning the alliances.
At the time we knew that there would be a reciprocal frequent flyer relationship, as well as codesharing agreement, pending government approval. That seems to have been successful, as the partnership will indeed be launching as of tomorrow. Here’s the information we have so far about their reciprocal frequent flyer agreement:
— Alaska Mileage Plan earning rates for travel on Japan Airlines
— Japan Airlines Mileage Bank earning rates for travel on Alaska
— Japan Airlines Mileage Bank redemption rates for travel on Alaska
