Robert Isom, American Airlines Chief Executive Officer & oneworld alliance Chairman said the following on the 25th anniversary:

“We are happy to celebrate the world’s leading airline alliance with more than 200 million loyal customers around the globe.

“Together, we now operate more than 12,000 departures every day – equivalent to a oneworld member airline flight taking off or landing every six seconds, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“Highlighted by the recent opening of our first fully-branded oneworld lounge in Seoul in South Korea, we continue to expand the oneworld network around the world for the benefit of our customers.”

“We look forward to the next 25 years of setting new standards in customer excellence and innovation.”

Ronald Lam, Chief Executive Officer of Cathay Pacific, a founding member of the alliance, said:

“Celebrating 25 years of oneworld is a testament to the power of collaboration and shared vision.”

“Our partnership has enabled us to connect cultures, bridge continents, and create lasting memories for travellers around the world.”

All eyes will be on how the next 25 years looks for the alliance moving forward.
