New benefits to Finnair Platinum and Gold tier members when flying with oneworld carriers

oneworld alliance has added two more benefits for the most loyal customers of its member airlines from the beginning of December.

Finnair Platinum and Gold members benefit from the priority baggage delivery and Finnair Gold members of an additional checked baggage allowance when flying on any oneworld member airline in any class.

  • On international or domestic itineraries using the baggage allowance “weight” system - 15 kgs in addition to the ticketed Economy allowance.
  • On international itineraries (including domestic sectors flown as part of international itineraries) using the baggage allowance “piece” system – a second bag, weighing up to 23 kgs, when the ticketed allowance is one bag.
  • On purely domestic itineraries with flights using the baggage allowance “piece” system – the assurance of at least one piece of checked baggage, weighing up to 23 kgs, even when the regular ticketed allowance has no free allowance.

Platinum-members already have the additional checked baggage allowance benefit.

“oneworld aims to be the first choice airline alliance for regular international travellers. Our frequent flyer benefits – which we believe are already the most compelling offered by any airline alliance – provide them with the highest levels of recognition, services and benefits when they need to travel beyond their home airline’s own network", said Bruce Ashby, oneworld Chief Executive.

“Six months ago, oneworld concluded its biggest yet membership expansion, with the addition in the past two years of 15 airlines as full members or affiliates. With this successfully completed, we are now carrying out a full review of everything the alliance provides its member airlines and customers to ensure oneworld offers the best. These two new benefits are the first initiatives to be rolled out as part of this process.”

oneworld is an alliance of 15 of the world’s leading airlines, committed to providing the highest level of service and convenience to frequent international travellers. Current member airlines include airberlin, American Airlines (including US Airways), British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN Airlines, TAM Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, S7 Airlines and SriLankan Airlines.
