EL AL Israel Airlines expands relationship with Alaska Airlines

EL AL Israel Airlines and Alaska Airlines have expanded their commercial relationship to include a reciprocal frequent flyer agreement.

The agreement was signed by the CEOs of each airline soon after the arrival of the first EL AL flight from Tel Aviv to San Francisco.

This agreement is in addition to the codeshare agreement that recently came into effect between the airlines allowing EL AL to place its “LY” code on various Alaska Airlines “AS” flights in the US.

With the EL AL and Alaska Airlines partnership, customers will be able to continue their journey to and from North America and Israel with connections on both airlines, in either direction.

“This is truly a historic day for EL AL,” said EL AL CEO Gonen Usishkin. “Aside from the fact that EL AL is linking the two high-tech centers with the new three times weekly flights, we are providing the full options for our customers with the codeshare and frequent flyer agreements with Alaska Airlines.”

The EL AL flights will operate three times weekly flying a 787 Dreamliner, depart on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
