  • Alaska Airlines intends to join the oneworld® alliance by summer 2021, which will connect Alaska guests to more than 1,200 destinations worldwide
  • American Airlines to launch the first service from Seattle (SEA) to Bangalore, India (BLR) beginning October 2020
  • A new American Airlines route from SEA to the global business hub London Heathrow (LHR) will begin flying in March 2021
  • Both airlines will continue their domestic codeshare agreement that offers customers hassle-free booking and travel between the two networks. The codeshare will also expand to include international routes from Los Angeles (LAX) and SEA

Both airlines loyalty members will enjoy benefits across both airlines, including the ability to earn and use miles on both airlines’ full networks

“Alaska has always been proud to serve Seattle, the city that we call home. We’re thrilled to give our guests more choice, broader use of loyalty benefits, and seamless global service with American and oneworld,” said Ben Minicucci, president of Alaska Airlines. “Additionally, international service to global business and tech hubs Heathrow and Bangalore is a tremendous win for the growing Seattle region and the West Coast.”

“Alaska Airlines has been an outstanding partner for nearly 40 years, and we’re excited to expand West Coast international service together,” said Robert Isom, president of American Airlines. “By connecting American’s strength in long-haul international flying and Alaska’s presence across the West Coast, we will build a better network for our customers than either airline could build alone. Together, we will deliver more value, benefits and choice for customers across the U.S. and around the globe.”
