Alaska Airlines new partner airline flight bonus is one Canadians should really consider – earn 10,000 miles on round trip flights

Alaska Airlines released a new flight bonus offer earlier this week that us Canadian’s should take a closer look at. This offer is for all of Alaska’s
non-U.S. based partner airlines that fly beyond North America. Meaning out of Canada (or the U.S.) to Europe, Asia, Australia etc. You get the picture. And most of the airlines participating do serve Canada. Save for Fiji Airways, Latam and Singapore Airlines you have 12 airlines that this bonus will work with for flights out of Canada. (See the list of airlines below).

This bonus itself is
interesting as it is a bonus that will add miles to whatever you earn on
a flight so that you reach 5,000 miles earned in total each way as long as you
fly between North America and a non-North America destination on one of
the participating partner airlines. That means round trip flights
will earn 10,000 miles in total. This is a really good bonus especially
if you are flying in a fare class that may only earn 25% of the mileage.
For example, if you fly the lowest economy fare class on Aer Lingus between Toronto and Dublin and credit it to Mileage Plan you’d only earn 25% of the flown miles or about 1,639 earned miles round trip. So with this bonus Alaska
Airlines will throw in an additional 8,361 miles to get you to that
10,000 miles. That’s a pretty sweet bonus! What is also great about this offer is that it is valid
all year starting March 1st and you don’t even have to register for it.
Simply credit the flight to Mileage Plan that is flown between March 1
and December 31 and the bonuses are yours.
