Alaska Airlines enhances mileage plan to earn more miles, upgrades

Alaska Airlines has enhanced its mileage plan with four flier-friendly changes, allowing members to book one-way travel for fewer miles, earn more miles on international travel, the company said.

Mileage Plan members can book award travel on Alaska Airlines flights using fewer miles, earn more miles when they fly on select Alaska global partners and elite members are eligible for complimentary upgrades on award travel when they book main cabin tickets. With the recent combination with Virgin America, Alaska Airlines mileage plan members now can earn miles on Virgin America flights.

Alaska Airlines, together with its partners, flies 32 million customers a year to more than 118 cities with an average of 1,200 daily flights throughout the United States, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico and soon Cuba. Alaska Airlines is a subsidiary of Alaska Air Group (NYSE: ALK).
