Global one

The GlobalOne Alliance was created initially by Arabian Airlines and Western Virtual Airlines, who have been code sharing for over three years to destinations in North America, Europe, and the Middle East.

The GlobalOne is intended to give pilots and passengers a greater variety of destinations to fly to, connecting its member VAs together through a highly detailed network of flights and code-shares, arranged by each member airline.
