Iberia and LEVEL tap Alaska Airlines to expand US West Coast connectivity






Iberia, LEVEL, and Alaska Airlines are all expanding their global networks under a new code-sharing agreement adding connectivity between Spain and the US West Coast.


 It covers a total of 37 routes from Los Angeles and San Francisco.


Iberia operates three weekly return flights between Madrid and Los Angeles, using Airbus A-330-200s.


Iberia passengers can now connect to more than 20 additional routes on the West Coast and Hawaii served by Alaska Airlines, including Anchorage, Fresno, Honolulu, Kona, Las Vegas, Portland, Reno-Tahoe, Seattle-Tacoma and Salt Lake City.


From San Francisco, the agreement with Alaska Airlines includes more than 15 other codeshare routes, which will connect with flights from Barcelona operated by LEVEL from March 2022 and also with the Madrid-San Francisco route, as soon as Iberia relaunches it.


These routes operated by Alaska from San Francisco are: Boise, Bozeman, Spokane, Honolulu, Jackson Hole, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Missoula, Maui-Kahului, Portland, Phoenix, Palm Springs, San Diego, Seattle-Tacoma, Salt Lake City and Santa Ana-Orange County.


This year Alaska Airlines became the 14th member of the global airline oneworld. Iberia has been a member since 1999.


"We are happy to extend our cooperation with Iberia, one of our oneworld partners. Alaska joined the alliance to link our network more efficiently with the world, and this improved association with Iberia brings us a little closer to Europe," said Nat Pieper, Alaska Airlines' Fleet, Finance, and Alliances Manager.


Members of the Iberia Plus loyalty programme or Alaska's Mileage Plan will maintain their status and enjoy full membership privileges when flying with the other airline.


Iberia's Sales, Network Development, and Alliances Manager María Jesús López Sols, said, "We are delighted by this collaboration with Alaska Airlines, which enables us to expand the number of US West Coast destinations our customers can reach."
