oneworld voted leading airline alliance for fifth year running

Tokyo December 14, 2007: oneworld has been named the world's leading airline alliance for the fifth year running in the World's Travel Awards.image

The award is the culmination of a record year for the grouping, with 11 carriers including Japan Airlines (JAL) joining, expanding its network to around a hundred more destinations, and with more co-location at key airports to smooth customers’ journeys and more revenues than ever before generated for its member airlines.

The World Travel Awards, presented on Wednesday night at a gala ceremony in the Caribbean’s Turks and Caicos, are based on votes cast by some 170,000 travel professionals and agents worldwide.

oneworld has retained the award for leading airline alliance every year since this category was introduced in 2003.

oneworld Vice-President Corporate Communications Michael Blunt said: “oneworld is delighted to have received this tremendous vote of confidence once again from some of the most knowledgeable people in the travel industry worldwide. It reflects the quality of our airline members and our commitment to deliver alliance customer service better than any one else. It’s a wonderful way to end what has been a record breaking year for the alliance.”

oneworld last month completed its biggest expansion since its launch eight years ago, with the addition of China’s Dragonair, following the recruitment earlier this year of Japan Airlines and five of its affiliates, plus Mal騅 Hungarian Airlines, Royal Jordanian, LAN Argentina and LAN Ecuador. Together, they expanded the alliance’s network to some 700 destinations in almost 150 countries.

Asia’s largest carrier, Japan Airlines joined oneworld on April 1, 2007 and on virtually every measure, is one of the biggest three airlines in the alliance. Five other members of the JAL Group joined oneworld alongside Japan Airlines as affiliates - JALways, Japan Asia Airways, JAL Express, J-AIR and Japan Transocean Air. With its five oneworld affiliates, it adds nearly 50 destinations to the alliance network - almost 40 of them in Japan, and the rest in China and elsewhere in Asia.

Also last month, the grouping opened its first lounge worldwide developed as an alliance project, at Los Angeles, following the consolidation earlier this year of its airlines’ operations at new oneworld hub Tokyo Narita, JAL’s main international hub.
