Star Alliance

The Star Alliance network is the leading global airline network, with the highest number of member airlines, daily flights, destinations and countries flown to. It was established in 1997 as the first truly global airline alliance to offer customers convenient worldwide reach and a smoother travel experience.

Star Alliance benefits

 
To make air travel even easier, the member airlines have coordinated their schedules, which often shortens the overall journey time for passengers switching from one Star Alliance airline to another on connecting flights. Moreover, customers receive a boarding pass for onwards flights, even if they fly on with a different Star Alliance member.

As members of Star Alliance frequent flyer programmes, passengers can redeem mileage accruals across the entire alliance network.

So they rise to a higher status essentially faster than they would in any individual frequent flyer programme.


Star Alliance Gold Status benefits (network wide)

  • Priority Airport Check-in
Star Alliance Gold Status allows you to check-in through the Priority check-in counters. With shorter queues checking-in, you can get to the lounge a little sooner.

  • Airport Lounge Access
When you travel with any Star Alliance member airline, you and a guest can escape the crowds and relax in over 1,000 airport lounges worldwide, regardless of your class of travel.

  • Priority Boarding
There's no need to rush out of the lounge anymore. With priority boarding you can enjoy the freedom of boarding at your convenience along with First and Business Class passengers.

  • Extra Baggage Allowance
As a Gold Status holder you can choose not to travel light. We allow an additional 20 kg (44 pounds) where the weight concept applies, or one additional piece of luggage where the piece concept applies.

  • Priority Baggage Handling
Similar to you, your bags get priority treatment and are among the first to be unloaded, which means you can be one of the first in line for a taxi/shuttle bus.

  • Priority Reservations Waitlisting
When there aren't any seats available on your preferred flight, we ensure that you sit at the top of the waiting list for another.

  • Priority Airport Standby
Should your meeting overrun and you miss your flight, you can relax whilst member airline staff arrange for you to be on the next available flight home.

With a lower status level in your FFP, you still get additional benefits by the Star Alliance network, the Star Alliance Silver benefits.

  • Priority Security Clearance (Gold track security)
Move more smoothly through airport security by utilising exclusive Gold Track priority lanes.
