Alaska Airlines to Join oneworld

oneworld announced that Alaska Airlines intends to join the alliance by summer 2021, and its plans to form a US West Coast international alliance with American Airlines.

Once approved, oneworld membership will allow Alaska Mileage Plan loyalty members to earn and redeem miles through alliance member airlines’ extensive global network.

As the world’s most highly-rated alliance, oneworld is on track to welcome Royal Air Maroc from 1 April 2020, adding its first full member in the African continent.

In the last 12 months, oneworld unveiled new digital technology to enable a truly seamless travel experience across member carriers and announced plans for the first alliance branded lounge at Moscow Domodedovo Airport. The alliance also introduced a fresh brand positioning, Travel Bright, to launch the alliance’s third decade and better reflect the diversity of today’s travellers and our member airlines.

In 2019, the alliance was the repeat winner of several airline alliance awards, reinforcing its status as the preferred alliance of customers and the travel community.

oneworld brings together 13 world-class airlines – American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LATAM, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, S7 Airlines and SriLankan Airlines, and around 30 of their affiliates. Royal Air Maroc is on track to join on 1 April 2020. Fiji Airways is a oneworld connect partner. Collectively, these airlines:

• Serve 1,100 airports in 180 territories, with 14,000 daily departures.

• Carry almost 550 million passengers a year on a combined fleet of 3,500 aircraft.

• Generate US$ 135 billion annual total revenues.
