S7 Airlines has temporarily left the Oneworld alliance, as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Russian carrier posted a statement on its website advising that “Due to the restriction of international flights, the business interaction between S7 Airlines and the Oneworld alliance has been significantly reduced”.

“In this situation, S7 Airlines and Oneworld made a joint decision from April 19, 2022 to suspend the agreement.”

S7 said that earning and redemption of miles with partner airlines continues as normal, with some notable exceptions:

  • Earning and burning on AA flights suspended since March 1, 2022
  • Earning and burning on BA and Iberia flights suspended since March 14, 2022
  • Earning and burning on Alaska Airlines flights suspended since April 8, 2022

The carrier also noted that miles can continue to be earned on Qatar Airways flights, “but the ability to use them for purchase tickets is temporarily unavailable”.

S7 Airlines was launched in 2005 following the rebranding of Siberia Airlines, and the carrier joined Oneworld in November 2010.

Rival Russian airline Aeroflot has been a Skyteam member since 2006 – as yet there has been no official suspension of its membership of the alliance, although members including Delta have suspended codeshare agreements with the flag carrier.
