OneWorld alliance gave green signal to Qatar airways after reviewing their readiness. Other airlines in the alliance include American Airlines and British Airways.
The inclusion of Qatar into the OneWorld alliance makes it competitive with the other two alliances that are SkyTeam and StarAlliance.
Qatar became the first airline of the Middle East to join an international alliance. Qatar operates daily flights from USA to major cities in Pakistan. Started in 1993 Qatar airlines has become one of the fastest growing airline in the world serving over 130 destinations from its base in Doha.
“In Qatar Airways’ relatively short history, we have quickly established a reputation for innovation, quality and excellence in everything we do,” Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker says in a release. “We are pleased to build on that by becoming the only major airline from the Gulf to date to be joining any of the global airline alliances. We are proud to entering the best of them, in oneworld — and to be doing so in record quick time.”
