Private Indian airline Kingfisher is to join the Oneworld alliance in February as the first from the Indian subcontinent to join a global grouping.
British Airways is sponsoring Kingfisher’s membership as part of its plans to strengthen its Asian network.
BA started codesharing with Kingfisher last year on routes around the continent.
Joining Oneworld will significantly strengthen Kingfisher’s network both in its home market and around the world, BA said.
The entry of Kingfisher will also add 40 Indian destinations to the Oneworld network.
Kingfisher, which serves 54 destinations in nine countries, is to officially join the alliance on February 10.
BA established frequent-flyer links with Kingfisher a year ago, allowing passengers to earn and redeem miles across both networks.
