Singapore and Alaska forge codeshare and loyalty partnerships
This year Alaska Airlines has made drastic changes to the Mileage Plan, its loyalties programme, as its Virgin America business becomes integrated, and rival airlines are making movements on the west shore. Initially, when the airline started a partnering with Finnair in May, rumours were circulating that Alaska could get close to a link with the Oneworld alliance after the completion of the fusion.
The American Airlines alliance will play a major part in this alliance, and the combined airline would seriously rival Delta, which is trying to grow to Seattle. Cathay, Japan Airlines, and a few other Oneworld airlines are already working with Alaska. However, in July Alaska and American broke off their partnership when they said that FFPs on both sides would soon only collect points on code-share instead of network-wide flight.
Meanwhile, Delta's and Alaska' relationships remain poor, as the two airlines alternate the launch of promotional campaigns to hijack each other's best clients. Alaska and Singapore Airlines are now working together to provide fidelity programs and a code share arrangement. Scheduled for the end of last months, the deal will allow Singapore Airlines to connect Alaska Airlines' internal services with Alaska Airlines through code share, thus extending their global reach from Singapore to Alaska's western coastal hub and then further into the United States.
Strangely enough, Singapore Airlines is a member of Star Alliance, a global airline alliance in which United Airlines is a member. Alaska' s countless alliance partners include the vast bulk in the Oneworld alliance, although several, such as Fiji Airways and Emirates, are operating autonomously like Alaska. Alaska has no other Star Alliance partners outside Singapore.
However, if you look at the overall Seattle and Western Seaboard strategies of Alaska, the choice to work with Singapore makes more sense. What is more, the Singapore partnership with the United States is the most important. Already, Alaska is working with a fistful of airlines, including Cathay Pacific, Korean and Japan Airlines, that link the western coasts. Working with these global actors allows Alaska to offer its clients the advantages of a long-haul route without actually running it.
That kind of service routine, as well as the program's distance-based income generation routine, can be what so excites Mileage Plan members. The programme has already received several accolades as the best carrier loyalty programme this year. American Express Co. is looking for travelers for its latest air ticket.
