Air France wants Airberlin to abandon oneworld membership, join SkyTeam

Media reports recently said that Air France has expressed its desire that its would-be partner Airberlin should abandon the membership of the rival oneworld alliance and instead join its SkyTeam alliance.

The airline in a statement said that it plans to start connecting its network with Airberlin and Etihad Airways and would start Air France flights operations from October 28, 2012 in association with them under an agreement to share some route codes.

Air France is presently a member of world’s leading global airline alliance SkyTeam, while Airberlin is a member of rival oneworld alliance.

Apart from Airberlin, other international carriers including Qantas Airways, Emirates Airline, Cathay Pacific Airways, American Airlines and British Airways are also members of oneworld alliance.

Air France has indicated that with partnership with Airberlin it wants to expand its network to important markets of Eastern Europe and Germany. The airline also said that Etihad Airways is also proving to have a stronger influence on the strategy of Airberlin than oneworld.
