List of Airline Alliances (updated April 21, 2021)

It has been just over a year since we last updated this post. The most significant change that would affect Canadians is adding Alaska Airlines to Oneworld Alliance. Now my hope is for WestJet to join an alliance themselves too.

There are 3 worldwide major airline alliances, as well as 3 regional alliances that we will mention further down the post.

We’ve built up quite an archive of posts to track the historic changes of airline alliances over the years:

Major Airline Alliances

Below is a list of member airlines for each alliance. The most significant changes occurred with Oneworld, namely the addition of Alaska Airlines and deletion of LATAM Airlines.

The changes from last time are specified with notes in brackets or struck-through (if no longer a member).
