FAQ

When is [insert airline here] joining oneworld???
Which airlines are lined up to join?
See list below and https://www.oneworld.com/member-airlines/overview
Another useful page for official announcements is: https://www.oneworld.com/news-information/oneworldnews

Current members elect (officially announced and currently aligning processes):


WY - Oman Air
Announced 20JUN22, with a target of '2024' - no indication yet when in 2024 this may be. https://www.oneworld.com/news/2022-0...-join-oneworld



Expected members:

EI - Aer Lingus
EI's new owners, IAG (owners of existing members BA+IB), stated before acquisition that they fully intended EI to rejoin, and have restated the intention since completing the purchase. EI has not yet been publically 'invited' by oneworld but should join eventually. When? When it's announced... When will EI become a full member of Oneworld?

We dont have a specific timeline. Were working as quickly as we can," he said.

Potential members:
Well, that's what the discussion below is all about! Heard a rumour? Think oneworld should chase a particular airline to join or switch? Make your case!

Which isn't a surprise given CZ only left Skyteam in early 2020, having commenced the leaving process in mid-2018.

CZ was probably going to join anyway, but CX being a shell of its former self probably bolsters the case for them to join. Will still be odd having alliance partner hubs so close to each other but they really do serve quite different markets.

Indeed, if it happens wouldn't be surprised to see CZ try and buy Air China's stake in CX (CA and CX have cross shareholdings in each other).

And possibly even try to squeeze out the British (Swire with 42%). Qatar also has 10% in CX from a few years ago
