Oneworld headquarters is moving from New York to the American Airlines headquarters near DFW Airport.
The Oneworld airline alliance led by American Airlines is moving its headquarters from New York to Fort Worth in December, American said Wednesday.
Oneworld, which counts among its members British Airways, Japan Airlines, Qatar Airways, Qantas and Alaska Airlines, will move its operations from Manhattan to the American Airlines headquarters campus in Fort Worth. There are 15 airlines in the alliance after Seattle-based Alaska joined in 2020, a rare U.S.-based carrier to join the group.
Oneworld staff have been located in New York since 2011 after moving from Vancouver, Canada.
Eight of the 15 airlines in the Oneworld network fly to DFW International Airport, making it a convenient stopping point for airline executives.
“As our industry recovers from COVID-19, alliances and partnerships have continued to deepen,” Oneworld CEO Rob Gurney in a statement. “With our new home in Fort Worth, we anticipate even closer collaboration with American and our member airlines as we work side by side to further grow and strengthen Oneworld.”
