Air France wants Air Berlin to move from oneworld to SkyTeam

Air France CEO Alexandre de Juniac said the carrier wants Air Berlin to move from oneworld and join its SkyTeam alliance. As quoted by Frankfurter Allgemeine, Mr de Juniac said, "With Air Berlin we want to expand the important markets of Germany and eastern Europe. We know the airline well. Together we can better defend ourselves against the low cost airlines. If we further work closer together along the way Air Berlin must decide if it would stick to the oneworld alliance or switch to the SkyTeam alliance of Air France-KLM," he said.
