Alaska Airlines and Iberia Launch New Codeshare Partnership
Alaska Airlines has launched a new codeshare agreement with fellow oneworld member Iberia Airlines. From October 7, 2021, Iberia’s guests will now be able to seamlessly connect from Los Angeles or San Francisco to over 40 onward destinations with Alaska Airlines.
On Tuesday (October 5, 2021), Alaska Airlines announced the launch of a new codeshare partnership with Iberia Airlines, a fellow oneworld alliance member. Iberia currently offers nonstop service between Los Angeles and Madrid, as well as seasonal service between San Francisco and Barcelona. Under the agreement, from October 7, 2021, Iberia’s guests will now be able to seamlessly connect from the U.S. West Coast to over 40 routes throughout the Alaska Airlines network. Alaska originally launched their partnership with Iberia on March 31, 2021, the day Alaska officially became a oneworld member. The Iberia partnership enables Alaska’s Mileage Plan members to earn miles on Iberia flights and features reciprocal elite benefits such as preferred seat selection, priority check-in, security clearance and boarding, lounge access and extra baggage allowance.
Speaking on the new codeshare partnership, Alaska Airlines’ Senior Vice President of Fleet, Finance and Alliances, Nat Pieper, said,
“We're thrilled to expand our cooperation with Iberia, one of our newest partners in oneworld. Alaska joined oneworld to efficiently link our network to the world, and this enhanced partnership with Iberia brings Europe one step closer.”
Alaska Airlines and their regional partners serve over 120 destinations in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica and Belize (from November 2021). The sustainability-focused carrier emphasizes Next-Level Care for guests, while offering low fares and award-winning service. Alaska has hubs in Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland and Anchorage. The carrier is a member of the oneworld global alliance, and along with their additional partners, Alaska Airlines’ guests can earn and redeem miles on flights to more than 1,000 global destinations with over 20 airlines. Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air are subsidiaries of the Alaska Air Group, Inc. (NYSE: ALK).
