LONDON – Alaska Airlines has today released a statement announcing the suspension of its partnerships with S7 Airlines & Aeroflot as a result of the Ukraine crisis.

The statement said the following:

“We are deeply concerned by the humanitarian crisis taking place in Ukraine. As a result, we are temporarily suspending our partnership with the Russian airline S7, a fellow Oneworld member.”

“Starting today, March 1, our guests will not be able to earn miles on S7. Our ongoing work to enable redemptions on S7 will also stop.”

“Alaska Airlines has also suspended its limited interline relationships with S7 and Aeroflot, the largest carrier in Russia.”

“Interlining allows passengers on one airline to be ticketed on a competing airline for various issues, such as bad weather.”

Alaska Airlines joins the plethora of U.S carriers who have suspended such partnerships already.

This is a developing story.
