The moment many Alaska Airlines customers were waiting for is here!

Via View From the Wing, you can now convert your Virgin America points to Alaska Airlines at a ratio of 1 : 1.3.  But you will NOT be able to transfer your points back if you change your mind!

You’ll Receive a 30% Bonus When You Convert Virgin America Points Into Alaska Airlines Miles!

I’ll give you the details about this new development!

Convert Virgin America Points to Alaska Airlines at a 1 : 1.3 Ratio

The merger between Alaska Airlines and Virgin America continues to progress!

Earlier, I reminded you you’ll be able to transfer your Virgin America points to Alaska Airlines at a ratio of 1 : 1.3 starting some time today.  And the points transfer is now live!

All you need to do is sign-in with your Virgin America account details, then select the number of Virgin America points you’d like to convert to Alaska Airlines miles (in increments of 50).

And you’ll automatically receive a 30% bonus when your Virgin America points are transferred to Alaska Airlines!

So if you transfer 10,000 Virgin America points to Alaska Airlines, you’ll end up with 13,000 Alaska Airlines miles.

There are lots of great ways to redeem Alaska Airlines miles for Big Travel.  But there’s no hurry to convert your points.  This option will likely be available until the merger is complete.

If there’s an Alaska Airlines redemption you have in mind, it’s a good idea to book it as quickly as possible.  But before you transfer your points to Alaska Airlines, make sure there are NO Virgin America flights you’d rather redeem your points for.  Because transfers are final (you won’t be able to turn your new Alaska Airlines miles back into Virgin America points)!

Bottom Line

You can now transfer Virgin America points to Alaska Airlines miles.  And you’ll receive a 30% bonus!

Before you transfer, be positive there are no Virgin America flights you’d use your Virgin America points to book.  Because you will NOT be able to transfer your points back to Virgin America after you’ve converted them to Alaska Airlines miles.

Darius,

Do you think you will be able to use avios points on Virgin Flights now?

the transfer website doesn’t seem to be working properly or has way too much traffic. I’ve tried mult times to register my Alaska account but it simply spins and spins with nothing.

On the site it asked me for my Elevate number but it did not ask for my Alaska number, which I have.

After I entered the email address, it says “account is now created” with no confirmation that Virgin points were transferred to Alaska.

Don’t they need my Alaska number for the points to transfer? I have logins for both but it did not ask for any Alaska information. Just my email address.

When I retried, it said “That email has already been used, please enter another email.”
