Alaska Airlines, today announced a new codeshare agreement with Iberia Airlines, a fellow member of the oneworld alliance. The agreement further strengthens the existing partnership between the two airlines by providing flyers with exciting and convenient travel options.
The agreement allows passengers on Iberia to book travel and easily connect to more than 40 routes throughout Alaska’s network for travel on or after October 7, 2021. On the West Coast, Iberia has nonstop service between Los Angeles and its Madrid hub, and seasonal service between San Francisco and Barcelona – enabling seamless connectivity to the Alaska network beyond both California cities.
“We’re thrilled to expand our cooperation with Iberia, one of our newest partners in oneworld,” said Nat Pieper, senior vice president of fleet, finance and alliances at Alaska Airlines. “Alaska joined oneworld to efficiently link our network to the world, and this enhanced partnership with Iberia brings Europe one step closer.”
Alaska launched its partnership with Iberia on March 31, 2021, the same day Alaska formally became a member of the oneworld global alliance. The partnership with Iberia enables Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members to earn miles on Iberia flights and features reciprocal elite benefits, including preferred seat selection; priority check-in, security clearance and boarding; lounge access; and extra baggage allowance, with further enhancements coming over the next several months. Iberia has been a member of oneworld since 1999.
This development will allow seamless ticketing and connections between Alaska Airlines and Iberia. This is just one more incremental step into bringing Alaska Airline’s full circle with the oneworld alliance.
