Qatar Airways will join the oneworld on 30 October 2013
It was initially said that it will join in 2014, but it seems that everything went very well, and Qatar Airways will join oneworld on October 30, 2013. Qatar Airways is the second airline in the Arab countries to sign a contract. joining a global alliance after the Royal Jordanian. The other major carriers in the Middle East - Etihad and Emirates - did not consider joining an alliance, but concluded important agreements with major operators. Emirates and Qantas have announced a global partnership and come into effect from April 2013. Etihad has agreements with AirBerlin, Air France-KLM, plus it has bought shares in several airlines, the most recent acquisition being Jat Airways (Air Serbia).
Throughout this accession process, British Airways he is the sponsor and we could even say the mentor. Following an in-depth analysis, Qatar Airways is receiving the green light from the British operator, all about a year after the start of accession preparations. This accession will be the fastest in the history of OneWorld. Air carriers normally need up to 18 months to implement all the alliance's services.
In addition, Qatar Airways will join the oneworld shortly before moving into its new "home", Hamad International Airport. It has been designed to withstand a traffic of about 50 million passengers a year. From its first flights on October 30, Qatar Airways will offer the full range of OneWorld services and benefits.
With the accession of airline Qatar Airways, the OneWorld network will be expanded to over 20 destinations in five countries such as Ethiopia, Iran, Rwanda, Serbia and Tanzania. In addition, Qatar Airways flies to 130 destinations in 70 countries, from the Middle East, Europe, Africa, North and South America, Asia and Australia, offering a more flexible schedule.
The OneWorld airline grows and develops from year to year. At 1 October 2013, LAN Colombia will join the alliance as a affiliated LAN Airlines member, and at 2014 will join SriLankan Airlines and TAM Airlines. We expect US Airways to join OneWorld because of its merger with American Airlines.
