How to qualify for Alaska Air mileage accrual on Aer Lingus
Flights must fall within flight numbers 0001 and 3999, and your flight must be marketed and operated by Aer Lingus
“To ensure flight credit, the two-letter airline code (EI) must precede the flight number (for example, EI XXXX) on your ticket receipt or boarding pass,” according to Alaska Airlines. “Mileage earned is based on a percentage of actual flight miles flown, with 500 minimum miles on flights shorter than 500 miles. No miles will be earned for classes of service not listed above.”

The partnership commenced on May 18, 2018.
“This new partnership with Aer Lingus is another example of how Alaska is giving our Mileage Plan members more and more ways to travel and earn miles to all corners of the map through our diverse global partners,” said Alaska Airlines’ Andrew Harrison. “Aer Lingus provides our members even more reach for travel within Europe, with seamless service through Dublin to 24 cities in the U.K. and Europe.”
Because Dublin has its own U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility passengers flying from Dublin to Seattle will be able to be screened for re-entry into the United States, without having to go through screening once they arrive.
“We’re pleased to join with Alaska Airlines. It’s a meeting of like-minded, service-oriented carriers bringing attractive propositions to their respective travelers,” said Aer Lingus’ Greg Kaldahl. “Our Aer Lingus guests will now be able to connect onwards to a wide range of destinations up and down the West Coast, Alaska and Hawaii; while loyal Alaska flyers will gain the opportunity to fly transatlantic on Ireland’s only 4-star airline. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership.”
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members can travel and earn miles to more than 900 destinations around the world through a network of international partners.
