Malaysia Airlines (MAS) will be a member of the Oneworld alliance by the end of 2012.

The carrier, which is undergoing restructuring, says "entry into Oneworld will considerably enhance its network while providing baseload demand from fellow members".

"We look forward to our full membership that will improve our brand awareness among the alliance members' customers and enhance our load factors through additional partner traffic," says MAS's chief executive Ahmad Jauhari.

Qantas Airways is sponsoring MAS's entry into the alliance.
