Airberlin became part of oneworld alliance, adding the second biggest airline in Germany and the sixth biggest in the continent overall, to the global airline alliance. Austria’s NIKI, also a member  of the airberlin group, joined oneworld as an affiliate member at the same time.

Both airlines are from today offering oneworld’s services and benefits – and substantially expanding the alliance’s network in Germany, Austria and throughout Central and South Europe. Since accepting its invitation to join the alliance in July 2010, airberlin
has implemented code-sharing with seven established oneworld partners – American Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, S7 Airlines and Royal Jordanian.

Meanwhile, Iberia Express, the new short and medium haul airline being launched by IAG’s Iberia, also became part of the oneworld alliance, when it launched operations in late March with four Airbus A320s.
