June 3, 2018 6:24 am
Oneworld today launched a new platform for linking up to the world’s premier airline alliance – enabling customers to enjoy more services and benefits across an even more extensive global network.
The first airline to join in the new capacity as a oneworld connect partner will be Fiji Airways.
A date will be announced in due course for when Fiji Airways will start offering oneworld connect services and benefits.
The initial oneworld sponsors of Fiji Airways will be all four of oneworld’s original founding members – American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Qantas.
The Australian carrier will additionally mentor Fiji Airways through its oneworld connect implementation process.
American Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Qantas already code-share and have frequent flyer links with Fiji Airways.
British Airways and Fiji Airways are currently discussing areas for potential bilateral cooperation.
Oneworld connect is the first new membership platform unveiled by oneworld since the alliance was originally announced 20 years ago.
