DSC_0154 (1)El Al Israel Airlines and Alaska Airlines announced plans for a reciprocal frequent-flyer program agreement.

The agreement complements the current codeshare agreement between the two companies that recently went into effect.

The move allows members of El Al’s Matmid frequent-flyer program and Alaska’s Mileage Plan program to earn and eventually redeem miles on the other’s flights. Base miles flown on El Al will count towards elite status in Mileage Plan.

The CEOs of both airlines signed the new agreement in San Francisco following the arrival of El Al’s first non-stop flight to the city from Tel Aviv.
