IN BRIEF | The Oneworld airline alliance is scoping out a potential partner from India.
"We are looking at it" Oneworld CEO Bruce Ashby confirmed on the sidelines of the annual International Air Transport Association annual meeting in Doha, Qatar, "but but we have no announcements to make today."
Oneworld is keen to tap into the growing Indian market, but the competing Star Alliance has the lead with next month's planned entry of Air India into the Star family.
However, Ashby counters that "In India, we are actually the largest alliance in terms of revenue from the Indian market."
"That is because of British Airways, Qatar Airways, Cathay Pacific and SriLankan Airlines. People do ask me are you going to add an Indian airline, and I say maybe."
