Alaska Airlines offers Double Miles on Select Routes
Alaska Airlines is launching 18 new flights come February from Paine Field in Everett just to the north of Seattle. In celebration of those new routes, Alaska Airlines is offering double miles for two months on all routes.
On February 11, 2019, Alaska will launch service at Paine Field, with 18 daily nonstop flights between Everett’s Paine Field and 8 destinations: Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orange County, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose.
Here’s a chart of the new routes:
According to Alaska Airline’s promo website for the deal, here’s how you can get in on these double miles.
Here’s how to earn double miles:
- Register your Mileage Plan number using the form below before your first trip and no later than March 31, 2019.
- Travel on qualifying nonstop flights between February 11, 2019 and March 31, 2019, and you’ll earn double Mileage Plan miles.
Make sure to visit Alaska’s page here to register your number BEFORE you take the first flight otherwise you’re not going to get those miles.
It’s also important to remember that these are not qualifying miles for status, but they are double miles for redemption. Nonetheless, earning double redeemable miles is awesome, as Alaska Airlines miles are some of the most valuable in the business.
I’m quite excited about flights into Paine field, but also know that this could provide challenges for people traveling to the Seattle area. Just like you can type in NYC and get all New York airports and type CHI to get both Chicago Airports, Alaska’s website is now allowing SEA to show both Seattle airports.
If you’re going to book these flights, MAKE SURE that you’re leaving out of Paine field (PAE) and not SEA. That would suck if you thought you were A) flying to Paine Field and got dropped in Seatac and B) didn’t earn your double miles.
Also, it’s quite busy at Sea-Tac especially in the summertime with cruise ships and tourists. I’m looking forward to Paine field flights to the north as a way to avoid the ridiculously long lines at Sea-Tac and offer a more seamless experience.
Now, I wonder if Alaska is going to build a lounge there 🙂
