Alaska Airlines teams up with Lyft for new partnership

Starting today, Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members can earn miles for their everyday Lyft rides – such as trips to and from the airport, heading out to a concert or across town for a holiday party.

All it takes is a simple step of linking your Mileage Plan and Lyft accounts.

Between now and Dec. 31, 2022, Alaska Airlines members will earn double miles: two miles for every dollar spent on rides everywhere Lyft operates in the U.S. and Canada.

“We always want our guests to have a terrific travel experience, even when they’re not flying with us,” said Sangita Woerner, senior vice president of marketing and guest experience at Alaska Airlines.

“Our new partnership with Lyft makes sure our flyers are also cared for on the ground as they go places.

“Alaska and Lyft are both respected brands by millions of customers who turn to us for access to their preferred modes of transportation.”

“We are thrilled to provide our riders with more benefits and opportunities to enjoy a best-in-class travel experience,” Zach Greenberger, Vice President of Strategic Business Development and Supply Chain at Lyft.

“At Lyft, we’re committed to hospitality and to giving our users the chance to unlock the best value for all their transportation needs – a key purpose embedded in this partnership.

“The Alaska team’s dedication to customer loyalty and creating a culture of belonging aligns seamlessly with many of the values that we maintain at Lyft.”
