oneworld website now features more content in more languages, itinerary planner and arrival and departure info17 January 2008
Major improvements to its website have been implemented by oneworld®, the leading quality global airline alliance, with more information now available in more languages.
The site also now features an upgraded tool for planning round-the-world trips and real-time arrival and departures information for all flights operated by all the grouping's member airlines.
The French, German, Italian and Spanish language versions of oneworld.com have been expanded to include translations of all the key content given in the international English and the Japanese versions.
The upgraded round-the-world itinerary planner lets you plan any itinerary using any oneworld member airlines along with their affiliates and code-share partners – and also to plot your own round-the-world trip within the endless possibilities available through the popular oneworld Explorer fare.
The planner is available at the "flight info" section of oneworld.com, along with the alliance's established on-line and downloadable timetables and interactive network map.
This section also now includes real-time arrival and departure status for flights by all the alliance's member airlines.
oneworld brings together some of the best and biggest names in the airline business - American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN, Malév Hungarian Airlines, Qantas and Royal Jordanian, and around 20 affiliates including American Eagle, Dragonair, LAN Argentina, LAN Ecuador, LAN Peru and, as British Airways franchisees, South Africa's Comair and Denmark's Sunair.
