From October 2012 nominated parents/brothers/sisters and a *travel companion of former staff with a legal spouse or a civil/partner could travel providing the airline agreement includes any of these categories of nominee. Previously this had applied to staff of single status only.

However until now the site for arranging travel on other carriers would not permit staff of married status or those who have a partner to arrange bookings for the above nominees. This has now been resolved and with immediate effect bookings can be made online in the normal way rather than having to phone staff travel.

The oneworld offer for parents continues to apply as before.

* a nominated travel companion of formere staff must be accompanied by the staff member.
