The OneWorld Alliance will relocate its global headquarters to Fort Worth, joining OneWorld founding member American Airlines and strengthening the region as a center of aviation excellence.
Currently located in New York City, the OneWorld global headquarters will move to Fort Worth in December, joining American on its 300-acre, state-of-the art Robert L. Crandall Campus adjacent to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker said: “It's go time in Fort Worth, and we're focusing on growing jobs and creating opportunities for everyone. OneWorld will be a wonderful addition to Fort Worth. The robust air service that American and other OneWorld carriers provide connects our region to the world, and that connectivity is part of what makes Fort Worth such an attractive place for businesses to invest and grow. I’m excited about what the future holds with American and OneWorld sharing a home in Fort Worth.”
American’s campus, located in Fort Worth and dubbed Skyview, is home to the airline’s Flight Academy, DFW Reservations Center, Robert W. Baker Integrated Operations Center, Training and Conference Center and CR Smith Museum, as well as an office complex that houses the airline’s leadership and support staff.
OneWorld has been based in New York City since 2011, following a move from Vancouver, where the alliance’s central management team was based after the launch of the alliance in 1999.
Co-locating with founding member American Airlines, the largest airline in the world, will further accelerate the alliance’s drive to deliver greater value for its member airlines and customers.
Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the fastest growing hubs in the OneWorld network, offering nearly 900 daily flights to more than 260 destinations. In addition to being American’s largest hub, DFW is served by seven other OneWorld members: Alaska Airlines, British Airways, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Qatar Airways and Qantas. Both Finnair and Iberia launched new service to DFW in the past year, leveraging the strength of American’s network at its largest hub.
