Ravn has its own loyalty program as well, FlyCoin, which passengers can choose to earn through instead.

Passengers should be able to start earning miles immediately, while redemptions using Alaska miles should become possible within the next few weeks, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

Anchorage-based Ravn, which was formed following the bankruptcy of the similarly named Ravn Air Group in April, 2020, flies to 13 locations within Alaska, mostly smaller cities and communities. Before the bankruptcy, Ravn Air Group served about 100 locations.
