From now through May 15, Mileage Plan members can earn double miles on what the airline calls its “most popular routes” from the two cities. Travelers can earn double miles for flights between SEA and 19 cities including sunshine destinations like Las Vegas (LAS), Los Cabos (SJD), Honolulu (HNL) and Maui (OGG).

Travelers leaving from SLC can earn double miles to eight West Coast destinations, including San Francisco (SFO), Los Angeles (LAX), and San Diego (SAN).

To mark the March 11 commencement of new daily nonstop service between SEA and Washington Dulles (IAD), Alaska (NYSE:ALK) is also offering double miles between the two airports for travel from March 11 through April 22.
