Oneworld Alliance Launches Events Discounts

 The global airline alliance Oneworld introduced Oneworld Events last week, a new service designed for event and convention organizers. Planners may submit a request form online for the opportunity to centralize terms and discounts across any member airlines for an event. Attendees of that event could then purchase discounted flights using an online booking tool, while the planners can earn and redeem travel credits. Planners also gain access to real-time management reporting. The program is for events of at least 500 attendees who are traveling from at least two regions. Planners can submit requests from three months to five years in advance of the event. With the launch, Oneworld has joined competitors Star Alliance and SkyTeam in offering an events program across member airlines.
