Fiji Airways Joins oneworld alliance as its 15th full member airline

Fiji Airways, the flag carrier of Fiji and the South Pacific, has joined oneworld airline alliance as its 15th full-member airline. The airline has been a oneworld connect partner in the past five years, developing cooperative links with all oneworld member airlines, paving its way to a more seamless integration as a full oneworld member. Fiji Airways’ transition to full membership will commence immediately and will be completed within the next 12 months.

 “It’s a very warm bula, or hello, to Fiji Airways as we welcome them as our 15th full member airline in the oneworld alliance. Fiji Airways is already part of the oneworld family, as we have had a highly successful relationship since the airline joined as a oneworld connect partner five years ago. With its tremendous growth, award winning product and services, and acceleration of connections with all oneworld member airlines, Fiji Airways will strengthen our position as the premier airline alliance for international global travellers.”

Nat Pieper, oneworld CEO

As a full oneworld member airline, Fiji Airways will provide oneworld Emerald, Sapphire, and Ruby customers with benefits including earning and redeeming miles, earning status points, priority check-in and boarding and lounge access. Fiji Airways’ top-tier customers will also be able to gain access to all oneworld priority benefits including a network of close to 700 business and first-class lounges globally, as well as newly opened oneworld branded lounges in Amsterdam’s Schiphol and Seoul’s Incheon Airport.

Fiji Link is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiji Airways, and will become an affiliate airline of oneworld and extend the alliance’s network even further by bringing its domestic flights to Suva, Nadi, Labassa, Taveuni and Kadavu; as well as regionally to the Pacific Island nations of Tonga, Samoa, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.

Fiji Airways recently announced record annual profits and revenues, for 2023, with 2.2 million passengers carried on its flights, offering 2.8 million seats. With unprecedented growth, increased capacity, and fleet enhancement with new state-of-the-art Airbus A350 aircraft, Fiji Airways is well set to continue its growth now as a full oneworld member airline, offering even more flights and new routes in response to the growing customer demand.

“I am extremely proud to announce our full membership in the award-winning oneworld alliance, marking a significant step in our commitment to providing unparalleled service and connectivity. As a full member airline, we are excited to enhance the travel experience for oneworld alliance frequent flyers, offering greater accessibility to Fiji and the South Pacific, and ensuring seamless connections and memorable journeys for Fiji Airways customers across the alliance network.”
