  • Oneworld stresses green credentials
    Posted by Adrian Schofield 2:39 PM on Aug 05, 2009

    Every airline or airline group has to have an environmental platform these days, and the Oneworld alliance is no exception. The group has just updated its own green platform, posting a substantial summary on its website. It’s no surprise they have done this – like I said, its pretty much compulsory these days. But it is still interesting to see what they are doing, from the perspective of both the alliance and individual airlines. The entire document -- with a lot of airline-by-airline detail -- can be seen here.

     A major focus is the alliance’s collective order book for more-efficient aircraft. The Oneworld carriers have 650 aircraft on order, worth more than $90 billion. This is 60 more than a year ago, with the additional orders worth $15 billion.
