Alaska Airlines is offering a unique opportunity to receive up to 50% off all Fiji Airways awards when you book using your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles. The discount is only valid until the end of this month but can provide substantial savings on awards for flights that are quite long.

Everything You Need To Know

  • This award sale is only valid until March 31, 2022, but your travel can be through November 30, 2022. So long as you ticket your award by the end of March, you’ll be good to go.
  • You don’t need to use any special codes or links to get the booking. Simply look for an award as usual on the Alaska Airlines website and the discount will be taken off automatically.
  • The promotion is only valid for destinations in North America, including Hawaii, to the South Pacific. You can fly to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, or any number of the other islands and countries in that region. This award sale is not valid for travel in any other regions.

What You’ll Pay

Economy class awards from North America to the South Pacific cost 40,000 miles one-way. With the sale, you’ll pay just 20,000 miles.

Business class awards from North America to the South Pacific cost 55,000 miles one-way. With the sale, you’ll pay just 40,000 miles, an absolutely incredible steal for such a long flight where comfort is of the utmost importance.

Alaska Airlines offers the ability to stop in Fiji on an award ticket on your way down to Australia or New Zealand, so to break up the flight, you may wish to spend a few days in Fiji before transiting down from there.

Hot Tip: See what to expect from your flight in our detailed reviews of Fiji Airways’ A350 in economy class and business class.

Finding Availability

  • As with many routes from North America to the South Pacific, award availability can be slim, especially in business class.
  • If you’re unable to find an award from Los Angeles (LAX) or San Francisco (SFO), consider starting your search in Honolulu (HNL), which sometimes has more seats available. You can make your own way to Hawaii and spend a few days there before continuing your journey to Fiji and beyond.
  • Fiji Airways offers lie-flat seats from Los Angeles and angled-flat seats from San Francisco, so you may want to factor this into your decision depending on where you want to start your journey.

Final Thoughts

If you were considering going down to the South Pacific, there’s no better time to book than when there is an award sale, and with up to 50% off awards, this promotion on Fiji Airways is a great deal. To get the most out of this deal, try to look for business class awards to maximize your comfort on such a long trip.
