The oneworld Alliance will relocate its global headquarters to Fort Worth, Texas, joining oneworld founding member American Airlines.

Currently located in New York City, the oneworld global headquarters will move to Fort Worth effective December 2022, joining American on its 300-acre, Robert L. Crandall Campus adjacent to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). American’s campus, 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’s new headquarters in Fort Worth will enable the alliance to tap into the significant aviation talent pool in the Lone Star State. Ranked as the U.S. state with the most air transportation jobs, Texas is home to one of the largest aerospace and aviation labour forces in the country. American has more than 30,000 team members in North Texas and has employees from several other oneworld carriers based at its Fort Worth campus.

oneworld CEO Rob Gurney said: “As our industry recovers from COVID-19, alliances and partnerships have continued to deepen. With our new home in Fort Worth, we anticipate even closer collaboration with American and our member airlines as we work side by side to further grow and strengthen oneworld.”
