oneworld's new Circle fare makes exploring Asia and South West Pacific even easier and better value

01 March 2007

Exploring Asia and the South West Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand, has been made easier and better value than ever with the launch of another new fare from oneworld®, the leading quality airline alliance.

Circle Asia Explorer will be available from 1 April for travel starting and ending in any of 14 countries served by oneworld's member airlines across Asia and the South West Pacific.

Travellers must pass through each of the alliance's three defined regions across these continents:

  • North East Asia, including China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
  • South East Asia, including Cambodia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
  • South West Pacific, including Australia and New Zealand.

A maximum of eight sectors is included in the ticket, with travel available in First, Business or Economy classes on flights offered by any of the seven oneworld member airlines operating in these regions - British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Finnair, Qantas and, from 1 April, Japan Airlines and two of its affiliates JALways and Japan Asia Airways.

Trips may be a minimum of five days in Economy Class or three days in First or Business Class, and a maximum of a year.

The first international sector must be booked before departure, but all subsequent segments can be left open, for confirmation as the trip progresses.

oneworld already offers two Circle fares - Circle Pacific for travel around the continents bordering the Pacific (North and South America, Asia and Australasia) and Circle Explorer, for travel between Europe, Asia and the South West Pacific via Africa.

These Circle fares are part of an extensive range of alliance fares offered by oneworld. Others include its round-the-world oneworld Explorer fare, its various Visit passes, providing for travel within each continent or Japan and also products for the corporate sector.
