US Airways to join oneworld alliance

written by australianaviation.com.au | December 10, 2013

Following the merger completion between American Airlines and US Airways, the later airline will join the oneworld alliance on March 31, 2014. The airline will exit the Star Alliance with final flights on March 30, 2014.

“Until the full integration of American Airlines and US Airways – which will see the combined airline retaining the American Airlines name – US Airways and its regional carriers will operate as oneworld affiliate members, under the American umbrella,” an American Airlines statement said.

“They will offer oneworld’s full range of services and benefits – although some may be phased in shortly after US Airways joins.  US Airways, American and their oneworld partners are working to provide the most popular benefits and services on an accelerated timeline.”

Both airlines will maintain their current loyalty programs during the transition period.

For Qantas Frequent Flyers, the merger will see greater access to US east coast connections, as well as point earning opportunities and ‘US Airways Club’ lounge access.
