阿拉斯加航空AS宣布與新加坡航空SQ達成合作關係

【事情來得太突然】今天阿拉斯加航空毫無徵兆地宣布將與新加坡航空達成合作關係,包括里程累積、獎勵票兌換、代碼共享等等(完整新聞稿見附錄)。自9月27日起雙方可以互相積累里程,而里程票的兌換也將開放。以下是新航積累阿拉斯加的百分比:

可見累積的比例並不樂觀,至少折扣經濟艙(N、Q、K、V)都無法累積。這也不難理解,畢竟這些艙位積新航自己的里程都只有10%到50%不等的比例。

另一方面更值得關注的恐怕還是里程兌換了,雖然現在沒有進一步的消息,但從阿拉斯加以往的作風來看,我們猜測亞洲-北美會延續50~60k里程(單程商務)的兌換水平。不過具體細節還是得等官方消息了,以下是對身處北美的同學直接相關的SQ線路:

不過我們先不要高興得太早,因為:

  1. 新加坡航空對於兩艙里程票非常吝嗇,幾乎不對夥伴開放,不知道到頭來是不是只有經濟艙可以換。要出SQ的兩艙最好的辦法還是用自家裡程兌換
  2. 阿拉斯加航空目前不能混合夥伴兌換。考慮到新航在國內很多二線城市的航點都由勝安航空(MI)執飛,有點像國泰和港龍的關係,因此暫時不能出SQ-MI這樣的搭配,對回國來說並不利。

一切有待時間來檢驗。

最後讓我們再感嘆一下阿拉斯加航空牛逼哄哄的合作夥伴,感覺完全可以自建一個聯盟了!。覆蓋的區域除了非洲之外,其他幾個大洲都有非常強勢的夥伴。對比昨天提到的阿提哈德失敗的投資模式,不得不說阿拉斯加航空是一個很神奇的存在。今年下半年LATAM的商務bug票就決定攢AS了!

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.
