Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan recently announced Mokulele Airlines as its latest airline partner. According to the press release, the team-up will come into force in early 2023. Through the new partnership, you will be able to book Mokulele Airlines flights via Alaska. Plus, Mileage Plan members will earn miles for flights on Mokulele Airlines metal.
Mokulele Airlines Overview & Partnership
Mokulele Airlines is a small airline specializing in hopping between the Hawaiian Islands. The Southern Airways-owned airline operates a fleet of 11 Cessna 208EX Grand Caravans. The airline operates flights between the 5 major Hawaiian islands serving the following cities:
- Lanai City
Although no official start date beyond early 2023 has been announced, Alaska has already detailed what travelers can do with this partnership. Once the partnership starts, travelers will be able to do the following:
- Travelers can book Mokulele Airlines flights directly via Alaska’s website or app.
- Alaska Mileage Plan members purchasing tickets on Mokulele metal via Alaska.com will now earn miles.
One thing to remember is that the mileage earning rates have not been announced yet. So we will have to wait to see how great the rates are. However, it is clear from the announcement that you will have to book your flight on Mokulele via Alaska to be eligible to earn miles.
Why the Deal Works For Alaska
The latest team-up makes perfect sense for both airlines. From Alaska's perspective, the airline operates routes from the Contiguous US to Kahului (Maui), Kona (Hawaii), Lihue (Kauai), and Honolulu (Oahu). However, once Alaska's travelers arrive, Alaska can't serve them further. By partnering up with Mokulele Airlines, Alaska can service its customers throughout their entire trip. Not only to and from Hawaii but also between any of the islands.
From Mokulele Airlines' side of things, the deal also makes a lot of sense. Teaming up with a much bigger airline like Alaska should drive more passengers their way. As a result, Mokulele Airlines can leverage Alaska's customer base to generate more business for itself!
This latest is great news, especially if you are an Alaska fan and a regular in Hawaii. The opportunity to earn miles for every flight of your trip is great news. While the ability to earn miles is great, it will be even more enticing if you could redeem your Alaska miles for flights on Mokulele Airlines through this new partnership.
