Alliance airlines


Member Benefits

Although the oneworld® alliance does not offer its own frequent flyer programme, if you are a member of a frequent flyer programme of any oneworld airline, your rewards and privileges are extended throughout the oneworld alliance.

oneworld Benefits by Tier Status

As a member of LANPASS you will also earn tier status whenever you take any oneworld flight - that is a flight which is both marketed and operated by a oneworld airline (the 2-letter designator of a oneworld carrier must appear on your ticket). As a LANPASS member, you must fly at least 30 segments on LAN flights that allow for the earning of kilometers to qualify for tier status.

Because oneworld’s airlines all have different names for the top three membership tiers in their frequent flyer programmes, the alliance has created a tier of names, based on gemstones, that are common across all oneworld airlines:

  • Emerald denotes the top tier in any programme.
  • Sapphire denotes the second tier.
  • Ruby denotes the third tier.

To help staff easily recognise top-tier members and identify the benefits to which they are entitled, top tier membership cards issued by all oneworld airlines carry a oneworld gemstone symbol in the appropriate colour.
