Alaska Airlines Partners with Porter Airlines

Canada-based Porter Airlines has partnered with Alaska Airlines to allow combined itineraries.

As part of the partnership Alaska’s Mileage Plan members can earn points on Porter flights booked via Alaska Airlines from January. Later in 2024, both VIPorter and Mileage Plan members will earn miles in their respective loyalty programs no matter where they book their flights.

Next year will also bring additional benefits including access to mileage redemptions with enhanced availability for both VIPorter and Mileage Plan members on each other’s airline.

“This partnership with Alaska Airlines is a significant win for passengers looking for more choice and better service when flying within Canada and the United States,” said Kevin Jackson, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for Porter.

Porter flights between Toronto Pearson and California begin in January, enabling Porter passengers to fly directly into major Alaska Airlines hubs in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Through these hubs and existing Porter destinations like Boston and New York City, flyers can initially access 18 western U.S. markets including Portland, San Diego, Seattle, and Phoenix, all available via Alaska Airlines connections.

Connections via shared Canadian airports are expected to come online in early 2024.
