As the competition between Alaska and Delta Air Lines in Seattle heats up, Alaska is taking their efforts to Salt Lake City, as they try to win over Delta flyers in Utah. Their latest tactic is that they’re offering Utah residents the chance to earn MVP Status with them with after just one round-trip flight.

Alaska MVP

Upgrade to MVP with One Round Trip

Alaska Airline is Salt Lake City’s fastest growing airline and as an exclusive offer to Utah residents they’re offering Mileage Plan MVP Status after just one round-trip.

To take part in this offer, be sure to register your Mileage Plan number prior to your first qualifying flight. Then, all you have to do is take a single round-trip with us from Salt Lake City between February 15, 2015, and May 15, 2015.

Presently, you can fly non-stop from Salt Lake City (SLC) to Boise (BOI), Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), Portland (PDX), San Francisco (SFO), San Jose (SJC), San Diego (SAN), or Seattle (SEA) on Alaska Airlines.

Alaska Double Miles

Double Miles to/from Salt Lake City

In addition, Alaska Airlines is offering double miles on all of their nonstop flights to and from Salt Lake City through May 15, 2015. To earn double miles, simply register your Mileage Plan number before your first trip and there’s no limit to the double miles you can earn when you travel February 15, 2015, through May 15, 2015.

As Delta continues to grow in Seattle, Alaska Airlines is hoping to do the same in Salt Lake City, so it will be interesting to see how much marketshare Alaska will be able to win over in Utah.
