Article from BTNews 30 SEPTEMBER 2013

Around the ‘oneworld’

oneworld has become the first airline alliance to enable customers to plan and book multi-airline round-the-world trips via their tablet computers. 

The development comes as part of a series of upgrades to the alliance’s online booking engine for its flagship oneworld Explorer fare which enables passengers to travel right around the globe using the flights of any member airline or affiliates.

Unlike other round-the-world fares, oneworld Explorer’s price is based on the number of continents visited (three to six), not the mileage flown, making planning and pricing journeys much more simple and flexible. 

Customers can build their itinerary simply by typing a city name or clicking on destinations displayed on the alliance's interactive map. The system automatically checks availability and displays only flights that have seats available for each route and date selected.  It also validates that the itinerary meets all the oneworld Explorer fare rules and conditions – and then provides an instant price for the trip.

Once customers have finalised their itinerary – which can be of up to 16 sectors – they can save and print out all the details.  The e-tickets for the entire trip are then sent to the customer by email.  www.oneworld.com
