The Oneworld airline alliance was founded by American Airlines, British Airways, Canadian Airlines (which was acquired by Air Canada, a founding member of the rival Star Alliance, in 1999 and shut down in 2001), Cathay Pacific Airways and Qantas Airways in 1999.
Oneworld primarily competes with the Star Alliance (founded in 1997) and SkyTeam (founded in 2000). It holds 13 full members (considering LATAM Airlines to be a single airline) and a Oneworld Connect member airline, Fiji Airways. Royal Air Maroc will join the alliance in mid-2020 as its first African member.
