So today we make our big announcement to the community! We hope you enjoy it!


American Virtual and Alaska Air Group Virtual are proud to announce a partnership that has been months in the making. What started out as a simple inquiry has become what may be the most realistic and fair partnership in the IFC. This partnership will include but is not limited to, joint events and a codeshare agreement. This partnership has been built from the ground up to ensure both VA’s have equal representation and power.

Joint Events

Joint events are definitely something that will give the pilots of both airlines plenty of fun. As part of the partnersship there is a joint event manager position who will organize events suited to both airlines. This helps to keep the partnership within the terms of the contract. Joint events are required to be approved by both VA’s prior to community announcement. We have great things in store here for our current and future pilots.

Codeshare

This is definitely the most anticipated part of the partnership. The basic premise is that pilots will receive full credit for their respective VA, and 50% for the whichever VA’s route they flew. For example, if an American VA pilot flew the Seattle (KSEA) to Fairbanks (PAFA) route, which is approximately 4 hours. They get the fours hours for American VA and two hours for Alaska VA. A special logging system has been designed just for this partnership and will be utilized by both VAs

Future

This partnership certainly has a significant amount of potential, and the community will without a doubt see a lot of traffic from us. We hope that all current and future pilots enjoy this partnerships as much as we have putting it together for the past two months.

Hi IFC, we at Alaska Air Group Virtual have now officially decided on a need to restructure to add, remove, and improve features within our VA. As such we will need to close our VA to pilot applications for the time being, but as part of the restructuring, we are adding and hiring for some positions to our recruitment department. These include x2 recruitment officers and a head of flight training. If you feel you are qualified for these positions please PM me and we will discuss further. Thank You all and have an awesome day!
