Aer Lingus Now Bookable With Alaska Miles
Update 6/20/19: Aer Lingus is now bookable with Alaska miles. Value seems to be poor, I’d recommend reading the Traveling For Miles post here for more in depth coverage.
Original post: Aer Lingus will begin flying between Seattle & Dublin on May 18th. It looks like Aer Lingus will partner with Alaska Airlines according to this piece in the Seattle Times. Relevant portions:
- “In an interview, Chief Executive Stephen Kavanagh said Aer Lingus will partner with Alaska Airlines to serve business and tourist travel between here and Ireland.”
- “Because connecting Aer Lingus flights with a U.S. network in Seattle is equally important, Kavanagh said he met with Alaska CEO Brad Tilden in recent weeks and the two plan to announce a formal partnership before flights commence in May.”
- “That means Aer Lingus and Alaska frequent-flyer miles will be usable across the two airlines and Seattle connections can be booked along with the Dublin flight.”
