Alaska Airlines, American Airlines Announce New West Coast International Alliance: Alaska’s West Coast Network to Connect With American’s Long-Haul Flying to Create More Choice for Travelers

 

SEATTLE and FORT WORTH, Texas — Today, Alaska Airlines and American Airlines announce an alliance to create more choice for West Coast customers. The expanded relationship between the airlines will offer customers several benefits, including:

  • Alaska Airlines intends to join the oneworld® alliance, the world's fastest growing and most highly rated global airline alliance, by summer 2021, which will connect Alaska guests to more than 1,200 destinations worldwide.
  • American will launch the first service from Seattle (SEA) to Bangalore, India (BLR) beginning October 2020. A new American route from SEA to the global business hub London Heathrow (LHR) will begin flying in March 2021.
  • The airlines will continue their domestic codeshare that offers customers hassle-free booking and travel between the two networks. The codeshare will expand to include international routes from Los Angeles (LAX) and SEA.
  • Alaska and American loyalty members will enjoy benefits across both airlines, including the ability to earn and use miles on both airlines’ full networks, elite status reciprocity and lounge access to nearly 50 American Admirals Club lounges worldwide and seven Alaska Lounges in the U.S.

The alliance will give West Coast travelers more choices when traveling internationally, offer seamless access across a broader network and provide strategic growth for both airlines.

“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.”

Alaska seeks full oneworld membership

Alaska intends to join oneworld, the world’s fastest growing and most highly rated global airline alliance. Once approved, oneworld membership will allow Alaska Mileage Plan loyalty members to earn and redeem miles through oneworld’s more than 1,200 international destinations. The alliance enables reciprocal benefits on other member airlines, such as priority check-in and boarding, access to preferred seats and free checked bags.

Seattle: An international gateway

Seattle’s first-ever direct flight to BLR will be available for purchase later this month, with daily flights beginning October 2020. Daily service between SEA and LHR will be available for purchase in May 2020 for flights starting March 2021.

“Beginning West Coast international service from Seattle will complement American’s strong existing international network from LAX,” said Vasu Raja, American’s Senior Vice President, Network Strategy. “India is a grossly underserved market, despite the number of businesses with a major presence in both India and the West Coast. By adding Seattle to Bangalore, we’re giving customers from more than 70 U.S. cities access to India in one stop or less — versus the two, three or four stops they’d have to make to get there in the past.”

Codeshare and Frequent Flier Benefits: More options for customers

Alaska and American will continue their domestic codeshare relationship, which was scheduled to shrink in March of 2020. The airlines will expand codeshare to West Coast international routes from SEA and LAX for broader international access and choice for customers. Codeshare gives customers seamless access to more destinations and reciprocal frequent flyer program benefits. Customers with lounge membership will enjoy shared access to nearly 50 American Admirals Club lounges worldwide and seven Alaska Lounges in the U.S. for same-day travel on American or Alaska flights.

“This alliance further opens the world for Alaska Airlines guests, whether traveling for business or pleasure,” said Andrew Harrison, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of Alaska Airlines. “And importantly for our employees, and the communities we serve, this West Coast international alliance enables Alaska’s continued independent growth. As we’ve shared, we’re focused on delivering for our guests over the long-term – which means continued profitable growth to enable new aircraft and new opportunities. This supports those goals, and is an important step on the path.”

 

The implementation of the expanded relationship and other arrangements described herein is subject to the negotiation and execution of definitive documentation and governmental review.

Espero que não comece uma outra onda de consolidação das empresas americanas. Ter companhias de nicho como a Hawaiian, Jetblue e Alaska, sem falar nas LCCs, é muito importante para a livre concorrência.

Caramba!!! SEA-Bangalore era algo que realmente não esperava. Mas é a rota ideal pro 787. Hoje só Delhi e Mumbai possuem voos p/ EUA. Imaginava Bangalore antes conectada a New York ou Bay Area. Bangalore é a capital do T.I na Índia, metrópole com mais de 10 milhões de habitantes. Curioso pra saber a O/D entre as duas cidades. Na região de Seattle, não tem nem 100.000 indianos e descendentes de indianos.

Acrescentando: Seattle é fantástica. Muito se fala da vizinha canadense (Vancouver) que é lindíssima, mas a metrópole de Washington não fica atrás. É uma das regiões metropolitanas que mais crescem no país (cerca de 5 milhões de hab na CSA) com paisagens belas, entorno fantástico e indústrias de pontas na região. O aeroporto de Tacoma já movimenta mais de 50 milhões de pax

A entrada da Alaska na OneWorld é sem dúvida uma surpresa, uma vez que a empresa sempre negou que isso iria ocorrer, apenas nos últimos meses passaram a analisar a possibilidade de ser um membro Connect, mas agora estão entrando como full member. Está aí a prova de que as alianças ainda tem algo a oferecer em termos de benefícios às companhias e aos passageiros. Para empresas como a Alaska, que adentram em uma profunda parceria com outras companhias, como a American, é apenas uma questão de tempo para que a operação dessas fique mais integrada, fazendo que o ingresso em uma aliança seja inevitável desse ponto de vista. No aguardo da entrada da Azul na Star Alliance como consequência dos projetos de JV com a TAP e com a United.

Gosto muito da Star alliance, mas no Brasil parece que existe uma maldição. Toda cia que entra nela deixa de existir. Varig, TAM, Avianca Brasil.

Também gosto, minha aliança preferida mas não vejo a AD entrando nela. Vai preferir ficar independente mesmo, a não ser que a proposta da UA seja “irrecusável”.

A questão é que a Azul já deixou de ser independente. Na Europa ela se amarrou à TAP e na América à United, Copa e Avianca. Ou seja, em seus principais mercados internacionais, a Azul já tem parcerias muito sólidas, com joint venture em desenvolvimento em ambas, todas com empresas da Star Alliance. A fidelidade exigida por uma aliança também é exigida por uma JV. Nesse caso, os acordos são com empresas Star, então, ao meu ver, a Azul teria mais benefícios que prejuízos estando dentro da Star Alliance do que teria estando fora. A conversa de se manter independente de alianças fazia todo o sentido há um ano atrás, mas hoje a realidade é outra, a empresa já deixou de ser independente no mercado global, então uma aliança não significaria mais um peso, ainda mais sendo a mesma de suas parceiras. Para mim é praticamente inconcebível e não faz sentido que a Azul tenha acordo de joint venture com quatro empresas Star Alliance e nao ingresse na aliança.

Não foi a Star Alliance que faliu a Varig e a Avianca, foi ma administração, o elemento SA foi apenas uma coincidência. A TAM saiu da Star pela porta da frente, diferente das outras, saiu devido a uma fusão que a levou à oneworld, e, já como Latam, também abandona essa pela porta da frente devido à uma nova parceria. Se a JJ teria sobrevivido sem a LAN nos não sabemos, mas a empresa não estava nem próxima de estar em crise no momento em que foi acordada a fusão.

Aliás, no ano do anúncio, a TAM apresentou o maior lucro de sua história mas dois anos depois, quando a mesma se concretizou, já estava no vermelho

Foi um movimento surpreendente mesmo. Sempre era ventilada uma possível fusão entre a Alaska e jetBlue, porém com esse movimento creio isso pode ser descartado...

Interessante, mas eu me pergunto com a AA investindo em mercados como BOS e SEA, é como a American enxerga Chicago na sua estratégia de longo prazo.
