Today, Alaska Airlines announced its 30th airline partner: Porter Airlines. This is also the airline’s first Canadian airline partner to date. Starting today, you can now book Porter Airlines flights directly on alaskaair.com.

Here’s what you can expect from this new partnership.

A Growing Footprint in the U.S.

Canadian carrier Porter Airlines has been in business for more than 17 years. The airline will expand its network within the U.S. next month to include nonstop flights to Toronto from Los Angeles and San Francisco. Flyers can connect to other Eastern Canadian cities, including Montreal and Halifax.

Porter will fly the 132-passenger Embraer E195-E2 from California to Toronto.

Similar to Alaska Airlines, Porter also offers guests fresh food options and ample legroom. The all-economy airline has various fare options, including PorterReserve, its all-inclusive option. With PorterReserve, guests get perks such as a seat at the front of the plane, dedicated check-in and boarding, and 2 checked bags.

Starting in 2024, Mileage Plan and VIPorter (Porter’s loyalty program) members will be able to earn miles in their respective mileage accounts when booking flights from either website. The partnership also signifies that there will be enhanced mileage redemption availability for members of both programs.

How to Book Porter Airlines

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members can earn at least 100% of the miles flown and 100% elite-qualifying miles when booking Porter Airlines flights at alaskaair.com. Knowing that, it makes sense for you to book your Porter Airlines flights directly with Alaska Airlines.

Porter will launch daily nonstop service between Los Angeles and Toronto on January 16, 2024. Daily nonstop service from San Francisco to Toronto will begin on January 25, 2024. Fares will start as low as $120 one-way.

Porter Airlines flights are not currently redeemable with Mileage Plan miles.

Bottom Line:

Alaska Airlines announces its 30th airline partner: Canadian carrier Porter Airlines. Flights are available to book at alaskaair.com today.

Final Thoughts

In addition to Alaska’s Oneworld partners, the airline continues to partner with other valuable carriers to expand its network. This news comes shortly after the acquisition of Hawaiian Airlines and leaves us wondering what’s next for Alaska Airlines.
