Enjoy Free Upgrades, Priority Boarding, and More with our MVP® Program

The More You Fly, The Greater the Benefits

Our MVP® - Most Valuable Passenger - program rewards the customers who spend the most time on our planes. Our goal is to make your flying experience as comfortable as possible.

To earn miles or segments towards our MVP® levels and take advantage of elite benefits, your Mileage Plan™ number must be in your reservation and flight miles earned must be credited to your Mileage Plan™ account. Additionally, in some circumstances, you may be asked to present your Elite Level membership card to the check-in or boarding agent.
