How to Upgrade Your Flight

For your convenience, Viking River Cruises Air Plus department can upgrade your flight using your frequent flyer miles for a $100-per-person service fee plus the additional cost to purchase an upgradable fare required by the airline (can be up to $2000 per person).

  • The average transoceanic flight upgrade requires 35,000—50,000 frequent flyer miles per passenger, per direction (see your specific airline mileage plan for details)
  • Additional airline fees may apply, and you may need to pay a higher airfare to qualify. You will be advised of any and all additional charges prior to ticketing
  • The frequent flyer program must be U.S. registered and applied to travel from a U.S. gateway
  • The program applies to airline frequent flyer programs only; airline-affiliated credit card mileage programs do not qualify

Once the service is requested and the Guest Information Form completed, a Viking Air Plus agent will contact your airline and investigate the availability of such an upgrade. The service is guaranteed. If we are unable to obtain an upgrade your $100 service fee will be refunded in full. (Once reservations are confirmed and accepted, the service fee is non-refundable.) For an upgrade request on an existing booking, Viking Air Plus can assist you.
