Kingfisher Airlines Makes Strides with oneworld

Kingfisher Airlines, a domestic carrier in India, is ready to be welcomed into the oneworld Alliance fold. A memorandum of understanding was signed as the airline's first step towards full membership.

The carrier has applied to India's Ministry of Civil Aviation for the authority to continue with its membership. The membership process is roughly 18 months. Pending approval, Kingfisher can expect to be fully joined by the end of 2011.

The addition of the airline to oneworld will include 58 cities in India, expanding the network to 800 destinations worldwide.
