Fiji Airways first member of oneworld's new programme

NEW YORK, June 5, 2018

The oneworld airline alliance has launched oneworld connect, a new platform for carriers to link up to the world’s premier alliance.

The new platform welcomed on Sunday its first partner - Fiji Airways - giving its passengers the opportunity to enjoy more services and benefits across an even more extensive global network.

A date will be announced in due course for when Fiji Airways will start offering oneworld connect services and benefits.
Oneworld connect is the first new membership platform unveiled by oneworld since the alliance was originally announced 20 years ago.
Presently, oneworld is in discussion with other carriers interested in participating in the programme, from various parts of the world including the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe.

Each oneworld connect partner will need to have a minimum of three oneworld members as its sponsors to be initiated into the programme.  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.  - TradeArabia News Service
