South American carrier LAN Colombia is to join the Oneworld alliance as an affiliate member at the beginning of October.

Its accession to the alliance follows those of Chilean-based LAN's other operators in Argentina, Ecuador and Peru.

LAN Colombia's membership, the alliance confirms, will mean that all of LAN's affiliate carriers will have transitioned to Oneworld with the exception of merger partner TAM, with which LAN formed the LATAM Airlines Group.

TAM will switch to Oneworld from Star Alliance in the second quarter of 2014, with a specific date yet to be fixed.
