Book Qatar Airways Flight Rewards On Alaska Mileage Plan

To the point

You can now book Qatar Airways flight rewards on Alaska Mileage Plan.

While Alaska Airlines joined the Oneworld alliance on March 31, 2021, it was not yet possible to book flight rewards with all Oneworld partners. Today, Ricky at Prince of Travel found that Qatar Airways flight rewards can now be booked on the Alaska Mileage Plan’s website.

Montreal - Doha with Qatar Airways

In Canada, the only route served by Qatar Airways is in Montreal: Montreal – Doha. A 12-hour flight you can now book for :

  • 42,500 miles and US$68 in economy
  • 85,000 miles and US$68 in business class

Especially since this route is operated with Qatar Airways’ best business class, the Qsuites (one of the best business classes in the world).

How to earn Alaska miles

In Canada, there are 3 ways to earn Alaska Miles:

The easiest way to do this is to apply for one of the two Alaska Mileage Plan credit cards offered by MBNA. Note that there is no welcome bonus for Quebec residents (although unofficially it is still possible to get one of the offers below).

Conclusion

It’s always good news to have other options for using Alaska miles (especially since the Emirates breakup). However, Qatar Airways may not be the best partner for all routes (especially to Asia). Other Alaska Mileage Plan partners such as Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines should be preferred.
