IATA AGM 2013: oneworld to be leading alliance in South Asia: Horton

American Airlines CEO and oneworld chairman Tom Horton stated (03-Jun-2013) during a oneworld briefing at the IATA annual general meeting in Cape Town that “with SriLankan and Qatar, oneworld will be the leading alliance in the India sub-continent”. Mr Horton said Qatar Airways is on track to join oneworld in late 2013 and SriLankan Airlines in early 2014. Mr Horton said that the decision by Brazilian carrier TAM to leave Star Alliance and join oneworld in 2014 “solidifies oneworld’s leading position in the Americas”.
