Default Alaska Airlines Welcomes Frontier Alaska As New Partner

Alaska Airlines Welcomes Frontier Alaska As New Partner In 49th State
7/7/2008 8:22 a.m.

SEATTLE Alaska Airlines announced today it is entering into a strategic partnership with regional air group Frontier Alaska that will allow Frontier customers to earn and redeem miles in Alaska Airlines' Mileage Plan and to book through-travel on Alaska Airlines in select markets, starting this fall.

"We're excited to be exploring the possibilities of working with Frontier Alaska as a new airline partner in the state of Alaska," said Rick Rasmussen, Alaska Airlines' director of customer loyalty and marketing programs. "Once we bring Frontier Alaska on as a partner, frequent fliers in the state of Alaska will enjoy easier connections on the two carriers as well as even more opportunities to earn and redeem miles in the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan."

Frontier Alaska operates an extensive year-round commuter and postal service operation from Fairbanks and Anchorage to the state's bush communities. Formed by the recent combination of Hageland Aviation Services and Frontier Flying Service, Frontier Alaska is the state's largest regional transportation network, with service to 92 communities.

"Frontier has a great service reputation and its routes complement Alaska Airlines' existing passenger and cargo service within the state," said Bill MacKay, Alaska Airlines' vice president for the state of Alaska.

"The reason we formed this network of service throughout the state was to provide seamless service for our customers from their homes to our larger hubs and on to the Lower 48," said Bob Hajdukovich, president of Frontier. "Alaska Airlines provides the final link and perfect synergy to our services. And the Alaska Mileage Plan will make every penny count whether customers are traveling locally or vacationing to Hawaii."

Alaska Airlines' Mileage Plan was recently named "Program of the Year" at InsideFlyer magazine's 20th annual Freddie Awards, the most prestigious consumer-generated honors in the travel industry.

Mileage Plan members earn and redeem mileage on more than a dozen airlines, including more major U.S. airlines than any other frequent flier program. Mileage Plan offers additional opportunities to earn miles through an extensive network of partners, including the Alaska Airlines Visa credit and debit cards, Mileage Plan Shopping, Mileage Plan Dining, Safeway, and more than 30 hotel and car rental partners worldwide.

Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air together serve 94 cities through an expansive network in Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. For reservations, visit alaskaair.com. For more news and information, visit the Alaska Airlines/Horizon Air Newsroom at alaskaair.com/newsroom.

mostly be1900c's and pa-31's. I think they now have some be99's as well. interesting place to work if you like working hard and flying into exotic rural alaskan locales. the be1900's are run under part 121 while the pa-31's are run under part 135. the part 121 flying gets an exemption to fly under part 135 time and duty regs so most of the pilots fly 1400hrs a year---at least they used to.....

Frontier recently merged with Hageland Aviation. Under the umbrella company called Frontier Alaska, Frontier Flying Service will get all the 1900s and Hageland will get all the Nava-joes, and operate as two separate certificates. As far as I know there are no 99's there.
