Airline alliances

A quick guide to which airlines are partnered with each other

Airlines have teamed up so that the consumer can benefit. By having compatible loyalty schemes and code-sharing the airlines hope to build customer loyalty to their alliance. As a frequent flyer it is useful to know who is working with whom, so we have devised the list below.

We recommend you visit the different alliance websites for detailed information on what they have to offer you. It may be worth joining one of their frequent-flyer programmes…

Oneworld Alliance

The oneworld alliance airlines fly to 149 countries. Frequent-flyer programme members can earn air miles on alliance airlines and top-tier members can also gain access to 550 airport lounges worldwide.

Star Alliance

Star Alliance serves more than 1,293 airports in 185 countries. There are 25 member airlines.


The alliance serves more than 900 destinations. There are about 14,500 daily departures and SkyTeam allows passengers access to nearly 500 member lounges worldwide.
