oneworld boosts group fares offering

25th Jul 2006

Groups can now use three of the oneworld alliance’s most popular
fares, enhancing the grouping’s provision of
alliance fare products.The ticket types eligible for group travel are the round-the-world
oneworld Explorer and the two Circle passes which enable passengers to
fly to the other side of the world and back without actually
circumnavigating the globe.

They can be used by parties of between ten and 30 passengers in Economy
class or between ten and 15 in Business class. All three fares continue,
of course, to be eligible for individual bookings too.

oneworld Explorer is one of the most attractive round-the-world fares
available, with its pricing, uniquely, based on the number of continents
visited, rather than the exact mileage flown. This makes planning trips
much more easy and flexible.

oneworld Circle Fares make planning multi-sector, intercontinental
journeys both easy and affordable. Two versions are available - for
exploring the continents bordering the Pacific Ocean or seeing Africa in
conjunction with two other oneworld continents.

All three of these fares feature flights on all the alliance’s eight
existing member airlines and their 12 affiliates, who serve more than
600 destinations in some 135 countries. This network will be expanded by
almost another hundred destinations in 2007, when three more airlines
join the group.


oneworld’s members include some of the biggest and best in the industry,
all renowned for the quality of their customer service - Aer Lingus,
American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, LAN
and Qantas. Japan Airlines, Malév and Royal Jordanian will be joining in
early 2007.

Because of the nature of these products, on-line bookings are not
currently available.
