Oneworld alliance welcomes 15th full member airline

The Oneworld alliance, which includes British Airways, has welcomed Fiji Airways as its 15th member airline.

The Fijian flag carrier has been a Oneworld connect partner for the last 5 years developing links with other Oneworld airlines but now becomes a full member.

Fiji Airways offers Oneworld a gateway to the South Pacific with connection from its Nadi base to Oneworld hubs such as Sydney, Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Tokyo.

As a full Oneworld member airline, Fiji Airways will provide Oneworld Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby customers with a full suite of Oneworld benefits including earning and redeeming miles, earning status points, priority check-in and boarding and lounge access

Nat Pieper, Oneworld CEO, said: “It’s a very warm bula, or hello, to Fiji Airways as we welcome them as our 15th full member airline in the Oneworld alliance.” adding “With its tremendous growth, award winning product and services, and acceleration of connections with all Oneworld member airlines, Fiji Airways will strengthen our position as the premier airline alliance for international global travellers.”

Andre Viljoen, the Managing Director, and CEO of Fiji Airways, added: “I am extremely proud to announce our full membership in the award-winning Oneworld alliance, marking a significant step in our commitment to providing unparalleled service and connectivity. As a full member airline, we are excited to enhance the travel experience for Oneworld alliance frequent flyers, offering greater accessibility to Fiji and the South Pacific, and ensuring seamless connections and memorable journeys for Fiji Airways customers across the alliance network.”

The membership comes as Oneworld celebrates 25 years since the alliance was formed by American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, and Qantas.
