Unique oneworld(TM) Visit Passes Now Cover the Globe With Extension to Asia

Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from oneworld

    FORT WORTH, Texas, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- oneworld(TM) now covers the
 globe with its unique Visit Passes extended to Asia, making air travel for
 visitors to the continent an easier and better value than ever -- with savings
 of more than 50 percent.
     Travelers buy a oneworld Visit Asia Pass in conjunction with a longhaul
 flight to the continent.  The Visit Pass can be tailored around their specific
 travel requirements, covering just two flights -- or more as needed.
     Passengers can travel on flights operated by any of the four oneworld
 members flying in the region -- Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Qantas, or
 Finnair.  They serve a total of 19 destinations in 12 countries:  Hong Kong,
 China; Delhi and Mumbai, India; Denpasar, Jakarta and Surabaya, Indonesia;
 Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo, Japan; Seoul, Korea; Kuala Lumpur and
 Penang, Malaysia; Karachi, Pakistan; Cebu and Manila, Philippines; Singapore;
 Colombo, Sri Lanka; Taipei, Taiwan; and Bangkok, in Thailand.
     Prices start at US $130.  They are quoted in US dollars and are converted
 to the currency of the country where the ticket is bought.  Prices depend on
 the number of flights required and the length of each flight.
     A typical itinerary might be: Hong Kong-Tokyo (US$250); Tokyo-Hong Kong
 (US$250); Hong Kong-Bangkok (US$140); Bangkok-Singapore (US$130).  This gives
 a total of US$770 for this four sector journey -- a savings of more than
 50 percent (US$824) against the regular best buy schedule fare of US$1,594.
     The launch of the oneworld Visit Asia Pass follows the highly successful
 introduction of the oneworld Visit Europe Pass last summer, and the
 enthusiastically acclaimed Visit North America, South America, Africa and
 Australia Passes launched earlier this year.
 
     Notes to editors
      --  Prices quoted do not include passenger taxes, fees or charges.
      --  oneworld Visit tickets are not available for sale within the
          continent to which they apply.  For instance, Visit Asia tickets
          cannot be bought in Asia; passengers must buy them before they travel
          to Asia, in conjunction with return intercontinental flights to Asia.
      --  Children aged 11 or under pay 75 percent of the adult fare, and
          infants, aged less than two, pay 10 percent.
      --  For full details, travelers should contact a sales office of any
          oneworld member airline.  Specific terms and conditions apply to each
          Visit product.
