Even though Iberia is one of Europe’s biggest airlines, it is still in the process of expanding their already numerous destinations around the world. In order to be able to offer its passengers a greater variety of routes, the airline was instrumental in forming the OneWorld alliance.
The OneWorld Alliance currently consists of American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines (JAL), LAN, MalÚv, Qantas and Royal Jordanian, three of which fly to and from South Africa.
For passengers travelling out of South Africa, Iberia only offers routes to Madrid and Barcelona from Johannesburg. However British Airways and Cathay Pacific, two other members of this alliance, offer a greater number of routes out of the country.
