Airline alliance oneworld has announced an expansion of its digital platform, allowing more customers to check-in and receive boarding passes for linking flights on one carrier’s app or website.
The platform was launched earlier this year when the alliance unveiled a brand revamp as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.
Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways have already connected.
And Qantas has used the platform to deliver connecting flight status to its oneworld partner airlines.
Iberia and Finnair will be the next two carriers to join the platform. Oneworld says that “in the coming days” Iberia will offer its customers “the capability to check-in and receive boarding passes for connecting flights on the other airlines already linked to the platform”.
Meanwhile passengers with Finnair connections to or from Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways and Iberia will “very soon” be able to receive Finnair e-boarding passes via the Cathay Pacific, Qatar Airways or Iberia apps or websites.
Oneworld says that over 8m passengers per year make journeys involving connections between different member airlines.
