Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Monday, 1 June 2009

 Indias Kingfisher Airlines is participating from Monday (1 June) in Global Explorer, which offers flights on all members of the oneworld alliance and some selected other airlines.

Global Explorer already includes a number of airlines with no other oneworld links - Aer Lingus, Air Pacific, Alaska Airlines and its Horizon Airlines sister, and Gulf Air. Flights carrying the Qantas code but operated by Air Tahiti Nui, Jetstar, South African Airways and Vietnam Airlines are included too.

The fare also covers all routes offered by oneworld's existing member airlines - American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN, Malv Hungarian Airlines, Qantas and Royal Jordanian and some 20 affiliated carriers, including LAN Argentina, LAN Ecuador, LAN Peru, China's Dragonair and South Africa's Comair. Mexicana and its affiliate MexicanaClick also participate, ahead of joining oneworld later in 2009.

These airlines serve five points in India - but the addition of Kingfisher Airlines' Indian domestic network expands that to a further 62 gateways across the country.

Russia's domestic carrier S7 Airlines will also be included in Global Explorer from 1 June, expanding the fare's coverage considerably in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, adding 54 cities and eight countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). S7 Airlines is also to join oneworld.

With the addition of Kingfisher Airlines and S7 Airlines from today, Global Explorer now covers flights serving a total of more than 850 destinations in some 150 countries offered by more than 20 airlines and some 20 affiliates.

Global Explorer is one of two round-the-world fares offered by oneworld. Its other round-the-world fare is oneworld Explorer. This includes travel on the alliance's existing member airlines and affiliates only. Prices are based on the number of continents visited, rather than on the distance flown.

oneworld also offers a wide range of alliance fares. For those who don't want to fly all around the world, these include Circle fares for traveling through several continents without actually circumnavigating the globe and Visit passes for each continent.
