Alaska recently enhanced its Mileage Plan by introducing mix-and-match, one-way partner awards and allowing miles flown on all its international partners to count toward MVP elite status. There is no minimum spend requirement to achieve Mileage Plan elite status, and customers enjoy generous availability on award redemptions, one-way travel awards, and combination miles-and-money award redemptions.

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan also rewards customers with elite status faster than any other frequent flier program. Elite-level status is earned for as little as 20,000 miles a year for travel only on Alaska Airlines. If customers combine travel on multiple airlines, elite-level status begins at 25,000 miles.
