Management[edit] Oneworld
Oneworld
announced the formation of a central alliance team, the Oneworld
Oneworld
Management Company (oMC), in February 2000, to mark the alliance's first anniversary. The oMC was established in May 2000 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and in June 2011 relocated to New York City. It acts as the alliance's central secretariat, with responsibility for driving future growth and the launch of new customer services and benefits. The oMC was first led by Managing Partner Peter Buecking, previously Director of Sales and Marketing at Cathay Pacific; followed by John McCulloch, previously the alliance's Vice-President for Marketing. Bruce Ashby, who previously held roles of CEO of Saudi Arabia's SAMA Airlines, CEO of India's IndiGo, and Executive Vice-President for US Airways, became CEO in December 2011. Rob Gurney succeeded Ashby as CEO in October, 2016.[4] Reporting to the CEO are Vice-Presidents for Commercial; Membership and Customer Experience; and Corporate Communications, a Chief Financial Officer and an IT Director.[5][6][7] The CEO reports to the Oneworld
Oneworld
Governing Board, which is made up of the chief executives of each of the member airlines. The Governing Board meets regularly to set strategic direction and review progress. Chairmanship of the board rotates among the alliance members' chief executives. Finnair
Finnair
CEO Pekka Vauramo currently has the role.[8] Headquarters[edit] In 2011, the alliance headquarters relocated from Vancouver, Canada, to Park Avenue
Park Avenue
in New York City, sharing premises with the local offices of a number of Oneworld
Oneworld
member airlines including American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Japan
Japan
Airlines, and Qantas.[9] Membership history[edit] New global alliance[edit]

Cathay Pacific
Cathay Pacific
is one of the alliance's founding members.

Oneworld
Oneworld
was unveiled by its founding members, American Airlines, British Airways, Canadian Airlines
Canadian Airlines
(which left the alliance a few years later on merging with Air Canada), Cathay Pacific, and Qantas
Qantas
at a press conference in London, United Kingdom, on 21 September 1998. Oneworld
Oneworld
was officially launched and became operational on 1 February 1999. The alliance outlined its services and benefits as including:

Smoother transfers for passengers travelling across all member airlines Greater support to passengers regardless of which member airline they are travelling with Greater range of round-the-world products Enhanced co‑operation in the member airlines' frequent-flyer programs to provide more rewards Wider recognition and access to more airport lounges.

Ahead of the official launch, the alliance embarked on an extensive employee communications and training programme, involving virtually all of the 220,000 staff employed by the five member airlines, to ensure they could deliver what the alliance brand promised. At its launch in 1999, Oneworld's member airlines and their affiliates served 648 destinations in 139 countries, and carried 181 million passengers with a fleet of 1,577 aircraft.[10][11][12] First additional members[edit]

Finnair
Finnair
became Oneworld's first recruit following the alliance's foundation.

Finnair, Finland's largest airline and flag carrier, was the alliance's first new recruit on 9 December 1998.[13] The alliance welcomed Iberia, Spain's flag carrier, as its second recruit on 15 February 1999.[14] Both airlines, together with Iberia's franchisee, Iberia
Iberia
Regional Air
Regional Air
Nostrum, joined the alliance on 1 September 1999, adding more than 50 destinations to the Oneworld
Oneworld
network.[15] On 19 May 1999, Lan Chile
Chile
(known as LAN and from 2016 as LATAM
LATAM
Chile) became a member-elect, the alliance's first representative from Latin America. LanChile's two subsidiaries, LAN Express
LAN Express
and LAN Perú, would also join the alliance.[16] Irish carrier Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus
was formally elected on board and confirmed as the ninth member of the alliance on 2 December 1999.[17] As Lan Chile
Chile
and Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus
joined on 1 June 2000, Canadian Airlines
Canadian Airlines
left the alliance, following the airline's purchase by Air Canada, a member of the rival Star Alliance.[18] Swiss International Air Lines
Swiss International Air Lines
(Swiss) accepted an invitation to join Oneworld
Oneworld
in September 2003, after signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on 23 September 2003 to establish a wide-ranging commercial agreement with British Airways.[19][20] However, Swiss later decided not to proceed with key elements of its agreement with British Airways
British Airways
and was therefore released from its commitment to join Oneworld.[21][22] Swiss was later taken over by Lufthansa
Lufthansa
in 2005 and joined Star Alliance
Star Alliance
in 2006.[23][24][25][26] 2005–2006: The first big expansion drive[edit]

The mid-2000s saw Oneworld
Oneworld
undertake one of the biggest expansions in its history. Hungarian flag carrier Malév
Malév
signed an MOU in May 2005 as a precursor to a formal invitation to join, extended in November 2005.[27] On 17 October 2005, the alliance signed as a member-elect Royal Jordanian, the first airline from the Middle East
Middle East
to accept an invitation to join any global airline alliance.[28] Japan Airlines
Japan Airlines
(JAL), then Asia's largest airline group, applied to join the alliance on 25 October 2005.[29] JAL and Oneworld
Oneworld
exchanged an MOU on 8 February 2006, setting out a framework for the remaining steps to be taken before the airline could be formally invited to join. On 5 June 2006, JAL accepted a formal letter of invitation to join the alliance, along with five members of the JAL Group as affiliate members, including J‑Air, JAL Express, JALways, Japan
Japan
Asia Airways, and Japan
Japan
Transocean Air.[30][31] All three of these airline groups— Japan
Japan
Airlines, Malév, and Royal Jordanian—joined as full members and started offering the alliance's full range of services and benefits on 1 April 2007, along with, as Oneworld

affiliate members, Japan

Oneworld
network to almost 700 airports in nearly 150 countries served by 9,000 daily departures, carrying around 315 million passengers per year with a fleet of almost 2,500 aircraft, with top-tier frequent flyers able to access 400 airport lounges worldwide.[32] On the same day, Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus
voluntarily exited the alliance due to a fundamental change to its business strategy. The Irish carrier was repositioning itself as a low fares point-to-point carrier, while Oneworld's focus was on the multisector, premium, frequent international travellers' market. Although no longer a Oneworld member, Aer Lingus
Aer Lingus
maintained frequent-flyer program partnerships with some of the alliance members and continued to participate in the alliance's Global Explorer round-the-world fare product.[33][34] Malév
Malév
suspended all services indefinitely in February 2012, citing financial difficulties.[35] Its participation in Oneworld
Oneworld
ended when the airline was wound up in the following weeks. 2009–2011: New recruits and expansion[edit]

On 26 May 2009, Russian airline S7 Airlines was unanimously elected to the alliance. It became a full member on 15 November 2010, adding to Oneworld
Oneworld
one of the most extensive networks covering Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States
Commonwealth of Independent States
(CIS). It expanded the Oneworld
Oneworld
network to another 54 cities, 35 of them in Russia. The airline's subsidiary Globus Airlines
Globus Airlines
joined Oneworld
Oneworld
at the same time as an affiliate member.[36] On 10 November 2009, Oneworld
Oneworld
welcomed Mexicana and its subsidiaries, MexicanaClick
MexicanaClick
and MexicanaLink, after the airline accepted a formal invitation to join the alliance on 9 April 2008. Mexicana and its affiliates added 26 destinations to the alliance map.[37] Mexicana was a former member of Star Alliance, leaving the group in March 2004 when it terminated its codeshare agreement with United Airlines
United Airlines
and opted for bilateral agreements with Oneworld
Oneworld
members American Airlines
American Airlines
and Iberia.[38][39] On 2 August 2010, Mexicana filed for insolvency proceedings in Mexico
Mexico
and bankruptcy protection in the United States with its financial situation deteriorating. The airline suspended all operations from 28 August 2010.[40][41] With the group under Mexican court protection, it has remained an inactive member of Oneworld
Oneworld
since then. On 23 February 2010, India's Kingfisher Airlines
Kingfisher Airlines
took its first step to joining Oneworld
Oneworld
with its chairman Vijay Mallya
Vijay Mallya
and chief executives from the alliance's existing member airlines signing a memorandum of understanding, subject to Indian regulatory approval. The airline gained approval to join the alliance from the India's Ministry of Civil Aviation and started participating in the alliance's Global Explorer round-the-world fare product. However, on 3 February 2012, just a week before it was due to join the alliance, Kingfisher Airlines' entry was put on hold to give it more time to strengthen its financial position.[42] Kingfisher Airlines
Kingfisher Airlines
suspended operations on 20 October 2012 and finally ceased operations in February 2013.[43]

On 26 July 2010, Air Berlin, Germany's second-largest airline, accepted an invitation to join Oneworld[44] and joined the alliance on 20 March 2012.[45] On 6 June 2011, Malaysia Airlines

became a full-member of the alliance making it the first airline in the Indian subcontinent to join any alliance. On 8 October 2012, Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways
became a member-elect of Oneworld. Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways
was one of the fastest growing airlines worldwide—adding 15 destinations in 2012 alone—and one of the most highly regarded, having been named Airline
Airline
of the Year by the Skytrax independent airline quality ratings agency in both 2011 and 2012. The agreement to join was widely reported in the media as a coup for Oneworld, with Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways
the first among the "Big Three" carriers in the Persian Gulf
Persian Gulf
to sign for any global airline alliance.[50] The airline joined the alliance on 30 October 2013. On 14 February 2013, American Airlines
American Airlines
began plans to merge with US Airways.[51] Following U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
Federal Aviation Administration
approval, the merger was completed on 9 December 2013. US Airways
US Airways
left Star Alliance on 30 March 2014, and joined Oneworld

as its alliance, and that LAN subsidiary LAN Colombia

and US Airways
US Airways
joined Oneworld
Oneworld
after leaving Star Alliance
Star Alliance
on 30 March 2014.[54] On 15 August 2017, Air Berlin
Air Berlin
filed for insolvency after Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways
Etihad Airways
stopped funding the airline. Air Berlin subsequently left Oneworld
Oneworld
upon entering administration and ceasing operations on 28 October 2017. Subsidiaries and franchises[edit] Besides its full member airlines, Oneworld
Oneworld
also includes around 30 "affiliate" members. These are generally regional airlines that are either owned by or have strong commercial links with the alliance's full members. For customers, they further extend the network the alliance can offer. In governance terms, these affiliates are represented in Oneworld
Oneworld
affairs by their "parent" airline. Air Liberté
Air Liberté
ceased to be an affiliate member of Oneworld
Oneworld
when the French airline was sold by British Airways
British Airways
to French investment group Taitbout with the UK carrier explaining that it had been unable to receive adequate returns on its investment in the business.[55] Kenya-based Regional Air
Regional Air
joined the alliance on 1 July 2001, following its franchising agreement with British Airways.[56] British Airways terminated its franchise agreement with Regional Air
Regional Air
when the African carrier suspended flights in mid April 2005, ending its affiliate membership of Oneworld.[57] TWA's regional carriers, which operated under the Trans World Express
Trans World Express
brand, became Oneworld
Oneworld
affiliate members, as their name changed to AmericanConnection
AmericanConnection
on 2 December 2001, following TWA's acquisition by American Airlines. Three airlines operated under the AmericanConnection
AmericanConnection
brand at that time: Chautauqua Airlines, Corporate Airlines, and Trans States Airlines.[58] The alliance further strengthened its network in Latin America
Latin America
when LAN's two subsidiaries, LAN Argentina
LAN Argentina
and LAN Ecuador, became the alliance's newest affiliate members. LAN Argentina
LAN Argentina
launched passenger and cargo services in June 2005 from its home base in Buenos Aires, while LAN Ecuador
LAN Ecuador
launched its services in April 2003 from its home base in Guayaquil. Both airlines officially joined their sister airlines and offer alliance's services and benefits on 1 April 2007.[59][60] Conversely, on 5 March 2007, the alliance ended its relationship with affiliate member and British Airways
British Airways
subsidiary, BA Connect. BA Connect's UK regional operations were sold to Flybe
Flybe
on 3 November 2006, in return for a 15% stake in the latter. Approximately 50 UK regional routes are affected by the sale; however, Belfast
Belfast
and Southampton
Southampton
would remain linked to the alliance network through other British Airways
British Airways
and alliance members. BA Connect's operations from London
London
City Airport
Airport
and between Manchester
Manchester
and New York were retained and operated by another British Airways
British Airways
subsidiary, BA CityFlyer, and the airline itself, respectively.[61][62] The alliance ended its relationship with affiliate member and British Airways franchisee BMED
BMED
on 27 October 2007, following the purchase of the airline by one of British Airways' UK rivals, BMI.[63][64] Four days later, Oneworld
Oneworld
welcomed its latest affiliate member and Cathay Pacific wholly owned subsidiary Dragonair to the alliance on 1 November 2007. Dragonair had the biggest network into mainland China for a non-mainland based carrier, with about 400 departures a week.[65] In 2008, the alliance lost another two affiliate members as British Airways continued the strategy of reducing its UK franchises. The first franchisee, GB Airways, exited the alliance on 30 March 2008, following its purchase by EasyJet. British Airways
British Airways
intended to start services from London
London
Heathrow to Faro, Portugal, and Málaga, Spain, and from London
London
Gatwick to Faro, Gibraltar, Ibiza, Málaga, Palma, and Tunis, which were operated under the franchise.[66][67] The alliance bid farewell to one of its affiliate member Japan
Japan
Asia Airways on 31 March 2008, following the airline's consolidation into its parent, Japan
Japan
Airlines.[68] The second British Airways
British Airways
franchisee, Loganair, left the alliance on 25 October 2008, following the ending of its franchise agreement with the airline. A separate agreement for codesharing on some Loganair
Loganair
services replaced the previous franchise, for British Airways
British Airways
passengers connecting through Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.[67][69] Tenth anniversary[edit]

Iberia
Airlines, Japan
Japan
Airlines, LAN, Malév, Qantas, and Royal Jordanian. In the past decade, membership has doubled from an initial five members to ten members now; its member airlines carried a total of 2.5 billion passengers and generated almost $500 billion, €450 million in revenue from passenger activities. Alliance fares and sales products generated $5 billion, €2.5 billion in revenue alone, with two-thirds or almost $3 billion, €1.5 billion would not have been generated if the alliance did not exist.[70][71] As part of the celebration and to increase awareness of the 10‑member alliance, all the alliance member airlines decorated a proportion of their aircraft fleets in a new standard Oneworld
Oneworld
livery—around 40 aircraft in total, mainly types that fly on international routes. The alliance also unveiled a special version of its logo, featuring the text "10 years" printed behind the word Oneworld
Oneworld
as a watermark on its round blue orb. Member airlines[edit]

American Airlines, British Airways, Canadian Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and Qantas
Qantas
are the five founding members of the alliance.

Benefits and services[edit] Premium status[edit] Oneworld
Oneworld
has three premium status levels—Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald—based on the customer's tier status in the member airline's frequent-flyer program. Emerald status is the highest level in each member's programme, and all of the statuses are recognised by each of the member airlines. The premium statuses have no specific requirements of their own; membership is based solely on the frequent-flyer programs of the individual member airline. Alliance benefits are only available to passengers on scheduled flights that are both operated and marketed by a member airline.[80]

Alliance fares[edit] Alliance fares include:

oneworld Explorer: Prices are based on class of travel (Economy, Premium Economy where available, Business, or First) and, uniquely, the number of continents visited, rather than mileage of the overall trip, to keep journey planning as simple and flexible as possible. Flights can be on any of the Oneworld
Oneworld
carriers. oneworld Explorer was the first multi-airline round-the-world fare bookable online. Global Explorer: Another round-the-world fare, but based on the distance flown. It includes some airlines that are not members of Oneworld, like members elect Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways
and SriLankan, plus Aer Lingus, Air Pacific, Alaska Airlines, Bangkok
Bangkok
Airways, Meridianafly, WestJet, and some flights operated by Air Tahiti Nui, Jetstar, South African Airlines, and Vietnam Airlines, extending the destinations covered still further. Circle Explorer: Similar to oneworld Explorer, but does not require travel to North or South America, so you can fly halfway around the globe and then back again, without actually circumnavigating the planet (for example, London-Hong Kong-Sydney-Johannesburg-London). Circle Pacific: Another Explorer variant. This one is for trips around the Pacific Ocean, covering Australia/NZ, Asia, and North and South America (for example, Los Angeles-Tokyo-Sydney-Los Angeles). Circle Asia
Asia
and South West Pacific: Covers Northeast and Southeast Asia, as well as the Southwest Pacific. Circle Atlantic: Covers Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. Visit Passes: Offers multi-sector flights on any Oneworld
Oneworld
carrier in a specific continent and also within Japan
Japan
and Malaysia.

It features the alliance name in large letters that are almost 2 metres (6.6 ft) tall and the alliance logo along the side of their fuselage, against a white or a polished metal background. The name of the operating member airline will be placed in smaller lettering in a standard position at the front of the aircraft below the alliance name and logo. Each member airline will also retain its regular tailfin design.[70]
