Four new destinations and one new country are being added to the worldwide network served by oneworld member airlines, which already covers almost 700 airports in 150 territories. The new county is Nepal, with Dragonair – which joins oneworld on 1 November – launching services between its Hong Kong home and Nepal`s capital Kathmandu from 2 December with an initial four Airbus A320s a week.

Also in Asia, Japan Airlines is putting a second Shanghai airport on the oneworld map, with the inauguration of daily flights to Hongqiao from the airline`s Tokyo Haneda hub from 29 September, by Boeing 767s initially and then Boeing 747-400s from late October. It will maintain its existing four daily round trips between Shanghai Pudong and Tokyo Narita. The new route will provide greater customer convenience, with both airports closer to their city centers than the established gateways.

In Europe, both British Airways and Iberia are launching flights to Genoa, making it the 15th city in Italy served by oneworld carriers. Iberia will inaugurate services first, through its franchisee Iberia Regional Air Nostrum, with daily CRJ200 flights to and from its Madrid hub from 28 October. British Airways will follow from 4 April, with daily services to and from London Gatwick.

In the USA, affiliate member American Eagle, the regional sister of American Airlines, is bringing New Mexico`s Santa Fe on-line to oneworld, with non-stops to and from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub from 13 December and to and from Los Angeles the next day, using Embraer 140 regional jets on both routes.
