Alaska Airlines and Aeromexico announced their new frequent flier and codeshare agreement to connect each other’s networks and bring more options to travelers flying between Mexico and several cities along the West Coast and Alaska.
“Aeromexico’s customers will enjoy Alaska’s easy connections, streamlined handling of checked baggage and more travel options to some of the West Coast’s most popular destinations, including Seattle and Portland, Oregon,” said Joe Sprague, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of marketing. “We welcome Aeromexico’s passengers to experience the award-winning customer service of Alaska Airlines on their next U.S.-bound flight.”
Under the codeshare agreement, Aeromexico’s “AM” code will be placed on Alaska Airlines flights between 20 city pairs, including all eight Alaska destinations in Mexico with service from Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and San Jose. Travelers connecting between Alaska Airlines and Aeromexico will be able to check in with the originating carrier, receive their boarding passes and check baggage through to their final destination.
“We are very pleased to announce this new alliance and confident that this commitment will benefit all Alaska’s and Aeromexico’s passengers, which will allow them to connect with 45 cities around Mexico and with 11 different countries in Central and South America,” said Sergio Allard, Aeromexico’s chief commercial officer. “Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan and Aeromexico Club Premier members will very soon also be able to enjoy all of their well-known benefits as if they were flying with the same airline.”
