Membership history

  • 1999 - In February, Oneworld becomes operational, and member airlines begin joining the alliance. Iberia and Finnair join later this year.
  • 2000 - Aer Lingus and LanChile (now known as LAN Airlines) joined the alliance. However, founding member Canadian Airlines is acquired by Air Canada after a period of financial difficulty; Air Canada is a member of rival Star Alliance.
  • 2003 - 2005 - Swiss International Air Lines accepts an invitation to join in September, at the same time signing a memorandum of understanding with British Airways, agreeing to a strategic alliance with the British carrier including extensive code sharing, slot exchange agreements at London Heathrow and merging the SWISS frequent flyer programme with the British Airways Executive Club. However, in June 2004, SWISS terminates the agreement, citing the significant costs and drawbacks of the integration would outweigh the long term benefits. As a result of the termination of the BA alliance, Swiss decides not to proceed with its application to join Oneworld. (In March 2005, Lufthansa announced the take-over of Swiss, paving the way for its membership in the Star Alliance).
    For a time during 2003, British Airways and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines begin discussions on a possible merger, which would significantly increase the size of Oneworld, bringing KLM's strategic partner Northwest Airlines into the enlarged alliance. However, the talks are fruitless and KLM merges with Air France the following year, creating the world's largest airline in Air France-KLM and significantly boosting SkyTeam, making it the second largest alliance after Star Alliance.
  • 2005 - On May 24, Oneworld signs a memorandum of understanding with Hungary's Malév Hungarian Airlines as the first step towards joining the alliance. Also, on 17 October, Royal Jordanian accepted to join Oneworld. It will be the 10th Oneworld member and the first airline from the Middle East in a worldwide alliance when joining the alliance in 2006/2007. On 25 October 2005, Japan Airlines (JAL) admitted that the airline is seeking a membership in the Oneworld alliance. JAL would expand the Oneworld network by around 10 per cent, adding 68 destinations - 56 of them in Japan and fifteen in China. It would add one territory—Guam. On 22 November 2005, Malév accepted a formal invitation to join the alliance, following its satisfactory completion of Oneworld safety and quality audits. The invitation is subject to Malév completing codeshare agreements with other alliance partners and continuing to progress towards a return to profitability. It is expected that Malév will be offering full alliance benefits by late 2006 or early 2007. [1]
  • 2006 - Japan Airlines completes first step towards Oneworld membership and signs a memorandum of understanding with Oneworld Alliance. JAL will join the alliance after reaching the remaining agreements.
    All Oneworld airlines serving Madrid move into the new Terminal 4 on 5 February. The airport is the home base for member Iberia. At John F.Kennedy airport in New York, Malév moved to Terminal 8 to join American Airlines and Finnair.
    On May 30, Aer Lingus confirms its intention to leave the alliance on 1 April 2007 as it repositions itself as a low-fares carrier, but will retain bilateral links with Oneworld airlines American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and Qantas Airways.
    Royal Jordanian moves to Domodedovo airport in Moscow, Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, and to John F.Kennedy airport (Terminal 4) in New York in order to better transfers with other Oneworld airlines.
    In September, it was announced that Malév is the first of the new recruits to complete Interline Electronic Ticketing arrangements with all other Oneworld members.

  • 2007 - Malév, Royal Jordanian, Japan Airlines, LAN Ecuador and LAN Argentina joined the alliance on 1 April. Aer Lingus exited the alliance at this date. Dragonair will be joining on November 1, 2007 as the alliance member. [2] Several Oneworld member airlines serving Narita International Airport move together into Terminal 2 to align with Japan Airlines hub. All Oneworld member airlines except British Airways are now in Terminal 2.
  • 2008 - All Oneworld members (except British Airways) serving Heathrow will move into Terminal 3 in March. British Airways will have exclusive use of the new Terminal 5. Details
