Alaska Airlines expands its codeshare agreement with British Airways, covering 16 additional markets.
Alaska said it is “connecting Alaska’s network beyond Seattle [SEA], San Francisco [SFO] and Los Angeles [LAX] to British Airways’ nonstop service from London Heathrow [LHR].”
“Alaska has implemented new partnerships with member airlines Qatar Airways and Iberia Airlines and expanded cooperation with … [oneworld] partners American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Finnair,” Alaska said in a statement. “These six oneworld airlines currently offer 16 daily international flights to Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles—enabling seamless connectivity to Alaska’s comprehensive network up and down the [US] West Coast.”
“Alaska [passengers] have had valued access to London and Europe with British Airways for years, and the additional pathways announced today will make it even more convenient,” said Nat Pieper, Alaska’s senior VP of fleet, finances and alliances.
Alaska, which has no long-haul international presence on its own, said its passengers now have access to 1,000 destinations in the US and around the world because of oneworld and its codeshare accords.
