Malaysia Airlines to join oneworld in 2013

Final decision comes after approval from Qantas



Malaysia Airlines will become a full member of the oneworld alliance with effect from 1 February 2013. This follows an initial decision in June to bring MAS into oneworld. Approval for the airline to join came after Qantas fully reviewed the Asian airline’s readiness. The Australian flag carrier is sponsoring its Malaysian counterpart’s entry into the alliance.
An alliance implementation program is on track for completion in the coming months, but full membership was delayed to February “to avoid the end-of-year holiday season and for other administrative reasons.”
Malaysia Airlines will expand the alliance’s network in South East Asia, where it will add 14 destinations and one country – Brunei – to the oneworld map. It will strengthen the alliance’s connectivity between many key business cities in Asia and other parts of the world. Malaysia Airlines’ network serves more than 60 destinations in nearly 30 countries. The 125 million members of the oneworld airlines’ frequent flyer programs – including Finnair Plus – will be able to earn and redeem awards and tier status points and receive all other oneworld benefits on Malaysia Airlines.
