STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS

On 29 October, Qatar Airways joined oneworld, becoming the first major Gulf carrier to join a global airline alliance. British Airways was its sponsor into the alliance. The airline serves more than 130 destinations in 70 countries. The addition of Qatar Airways to oneworld enhances the alliance's network and product offerings in one of the world's fastest growing regions for air travel demand.

 

British Airways announced that its hand-baggage only and new semi-flex fare options are now available across its short-haul network of more than 90 destinations.

 

On 15 October, Iberia unveiled its new corporate image as part of its transformation plan which aims to reshape the company into a modern, competitive and trend-setting airline. In mid-November Iberia will start to operate its fifth Airbus A330, which will be the first with the new livery in place.

 

Vueling will offer seven new destinations from Barcelona-El Prat airport in the summer 2014 season: Dakar, Warsaw, Leipzig, Budapest, Belgrade and Porto and Jerez. With these new routes, Vueling will have a total of 111 destinations from Barcelona to Europe, North Africa and Middle East.
