Porter Partners With Alaska Airlines

 

Porter Airlines and Alaska Airlines have announced a broad partnership, taking advantage of Porter’s strong presence across Eastern Canada and Alaska’s well-established U.S. West Coast links to provide passengers more flight options and better service from coast to coast.

The new interline agreement means that passengers can purchase combined Porter-Alaska itineraries directly from flyporter.com or via third-party agencies.

Alaska’s Mileage Plan members can start earning points on Porter flights booked via Alaska Airlines from January, and later in 2024 both VIPorter and Mileage Plan members will earn miles in their respective loyalty programs no matter where they book their flights.

“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, Porter Airlines. “Alaska and Porter emphasize passenger service excellence on each and every flight. We’re excited about what this means for passengers across North America.”

With Porter flights connecting Toronto Pearson and California taking off in January, passengers will be able 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, passengers can initially access 18 western U.S. markets including PortlandSan DiegoSeattle, and Phoenix, all available via an Alaska Airlines connection. Connections via shared Canadian airports are expected to come online in early 2024.

“Porter Airlines opens new opportunities for our guests to travel to Canada in style,” said Brett Catlin, vice president of loyalty, alliances and sales at Alaska Airlines. “We’re thrilled to partner with a vibrant and growing airline, and eager for our flyers to enjoy the refined experience that Porter offers, including top-notch inflight service and terrific onboard amenities.”
