Finnair welcomes TAM Airlines and US Airways to oneworld

TAM Airlines and US Airways yesterday completed their transition to oneworld, marking the biggest single-day expansion of the world’s leading quality airline alliance since its launch 15 years ago.
From today, the 140 million members of the established oneworld airlines’ frequent flyer programs can earn and redeem awards and tier status points and receive all other oneworld benefits when flying on TAM and US Airways.

To celebrate the additions to oneworld, Finnair Plus members will receive double the normal mileage awards when flying on TAM during May, and double the regular mileage awards when flying on US Airways between April 1 and June 30.

TAM and US Airways significantly expand the alliance on many key measures:
• Increasing the number of passengers carried annually across the alliance network by a third, adding another 120 million customers a year
• Expanding the annual capacity offered by the alliance by 20 per cent
• Adding almost a hundred destinations to the oneworld network – nearly a 10 per cent increase

“We at Finnair are very excited to welcome this extremely significant expansion of the oneworld family in the Americas,” says Finnair CEO Pekka Vauramo. “Finnair passengers can increasingly feel at home with fellow oneworld carriers on every continent, and Finnair Plus membership now has more utility than ever, as customers are able to earn points and redeem them for services and flights all over North and South America.”
