Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members have more access to and more ways to experience the sights and sounds of Europe with award redemptions now available through Aer Lingus. The expanded rewards redemption reach marks the latest in Alaska’s growing portfolio of Global Partners. Award flights to Dublin and beyond can be redeemed starting at 30,000 miles one way.

In 2018, Alaska Airlines and Aer Lingus began a broad partnership to offer more options to earn and redeem miles on transatlantic flights to Europe, the top regional destination for Mileage Plan members. Members are now able to redeem for both economy and Business Class seats on nonstop flights.
