Malaysia Airlines Confirms oneworld Alliance

Oneworld Malaysia Airlines

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Confirms oneworld Alliance and has announced, that it had been unanimously elected by the chief executives of the alliance’s member airlines at the 2011 IATA conference in Singapore.

MAS, as it was previously being called, is currently a member-elect for the oneworld alliance, sponsored by Qantas Airways.

Today, MAS remains focused on joining the oneworld alliance, following the formal invitation to join oneworld on 6 June 2011.

The airline is currently working diligently to meet the alliance requirements, to ensure that it becomes a full member soonest possible, subject to the relevant regulatory approvals being obtained.

The airline is hopeful that the oneworld alliance membership can materialize within the first half of next year, and would coincide with the introduction into service of its flagship A380 aircraft.

MAS is also reviewing its product offering on its new long-haul aircraft deliveries, especially the wide-body A380 and A330 aircraft to ensure its products are “best-in-class”.

With the combination of oneworld membership, “best-in-class” product and the airline’s world-renowned service standards, Malaysia Airlines is confident that revenues and yields would improve, and that 2012 would see a positive turnaround for the airline's finances.

MAS impending oneworld membership will also lead to easier transfers, code-shares, joint ventures and greater route access amongst alliance partners, as well as benefit passengers in terms of miles points, lounge, and other rewards.

Many have waited for this partnership of Malaysia Airlines and oneworld, hoping to see possibly more benefits out of this partnership.
