阿拉斯加航空AS宣布与新加坡航空SQ达成合作关系

【事情来得太突然】今天阿拉斯加航空毫无征兆地宣布将与新加坡航空达成合作关系,包括里程累积、奖励票兑换、代码共享等等(完整新闻稿见附录)。自9月27日起双方可以互相积累里程,而里程票的兑换也将开放。以下是新航积累阿拉斯加的百分比:

可见累积的比例并不乐观,至少折扣经济舱(N、Q、K、V)都无法累积。这也不难理解,毕竟这些舱位积新航自己的里程都只有10%到50%不等的比例。

另一方面更值得关注的恐怕还是里程兑换了,虽然现在没有进一步的消息,但从阿拉斯加以往的作风来看,我们猜测亚洲-北美会延续50~60k里程(单程商务)的兑换水平。不过具体细节还是得等官方消息了,以下是对身处北美的同学直接相关的SQ线路:

不过我们先不要高兴得太早,因为:

  1. 新加坡航空对于两舱里程票非常吝啬,几乎不对伙伴开放,不知道到头来是不是只有经济舱可以换。要出SQ的两舱最好的办法还是用自家里程兑换
  2. 阿拉斯加航空目前不能混合伙伴兑换。考虑到新航在国内很多二线城市的航点都由胜安航空(MI)执飞,有点像国泰和港龙的关系,因此暂时不能出SQ-MI这样的搭配,对回国来说并不利。

一切有待时间来检验。

最后让我们再感叹一下阿拉斯加航空牛逼哄哄的合作伙伴,感觉完全可以自建一个联盟了!。覆盖的区域除了非洲之外,其他几个大洲都有非常强势的伙伴。对比昨天提到的阿提哈德失败的投资模式,不得不说阿拉斯加航空是一个很神奇的存在。今年下半年LATAM的商务bug票就决定攒AS了!

附录. 阿拉斯加航空官方消息

SEATTLE, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Alaska Airlines announced today that Singapore Airlines will be its newest Global Partner. Members of Alaska Mileage Plan and Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer loyalty programs will begin earning miles on each other’s flights beginning Sept. 27. Mileage Plan members will be able to redeem miles for travel awards on Singapore Airlines-operated flights at a later date.

In addition, the two carriers will enact a codeshare partnership, pending government approval, which will allow guests booking through Singapore Airlines to travel on both airlines and enjoy seamless reservations and ticketing, one-stop check-in, baggage checked to final destination and coordinated flight schedules.

“We’re very proud to add an airline of the caliber of Singapore Airlines to our portfolio of Global Partners,” said Andrew Harrison, chief commercial officer for Alaska Airlines. “Our guests will enjoy truly distinctive inflight service when traveling with Singapore Airlines, while also taking full advantage of their Alaska Mileage Plan benefits when traveling from the West Coast to Asia.”

Virgin America guests have enjoyed frequent flyer benefits with Singapore Airlines since 2013. Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan will take over as the singular loyalty program for Virgin America flyers starting in 2018.

“Our new partnership with Alaska Airlines enables us to improve connectivity between Singapore and the important North American market, providing customers with more codeshare destinations and enhanced KrisFlyer benefits. It also reflects our commitment to continuously expand our network reach and offer our customers greater flexibility when planning their travel itineraries,” said Tan Kai Ping, Singapore Airlines senior vice president marketing planning.

Known for its premium inflight service as the world’s most awarded airline, Singapore Airlines flies from Alaska’s San Francisco hub to Singapore nonstop and via Hong Kong, and from Alaska’s Los Angeles hub to Singapore via Seoul or Tokyo (Narita), with connecting service from Seattle and Portland. In all, Changi Airport-based Singapore Airlines flies to over 60 destinations in more than 30 countries on five continents worldwide.
