BA Response To SR Rumors

Tue Feb 13, 2001 1:34 am

Don't know if this has been posted before, but here is a response by BA to the rumors circulating about SAir Group:

BA Responds to Swissair Rumours

British Airways has responded to media questions about rumoured negotiations between BA and Swissair on the latter’s possible membership of the oneworld alliance with the following comments:

Our immediate priority is to strengthen our relationship with the existing European members of oneworld - Finnair, Iberia and Aer Lingus.

It will come as no surprise to learn that we regularly explore other opportunities for oneworld. However, many of these enquiries come to nothing.

We are aware that Swissair has been reviewing its alliance policy. It already has existing relationships with the majority of all the oneworld carriers, except British Airways and Lanchile.

oneworld would consider any approach from Swissair to join the alliance in the same way it would consider an approach from any other airline.

Electing new members is a matter for the oneworld Governing Board. Any new member must be supported by all existing members.

oneworld has always stated that any new member must add value to oneworld overall, to its customers and to its members."
