Alaska Airlines and Ravn Air Group Announce Codeshare Agreement,
Offering Customers Greater Choice and Access

Anchorage, Alaska – Today, Ravn Air Group (“Ravn”) and Alaska Airlines announced a new and expanded codeshare agreement and frequent flier partnership, which will provide more seamless travel and mileage earning opportunities throughout the state of Alaska.
