Star Alliance has been named as the world’s leading airline alliance at the World Travel Awards for the third consecutive year.
Graham E Cooke, founder, World Travel Awards, said, “Star Alliance continues to set the benchmark for global aviation and I am delighted that both the travel trade and the public have acknowledged this by voting it the World’s Leading Airline Alliance 2022 at the World Travel Awards. Earlier this year, Star Alliance’s groundbreaking LA lounge was also the runaway winner for North America's Leading Airport Lounge once again.”
A number of Star Alliance member carriers also came away as individual winners this year. Nine airlines won awards in 21 categories, ranging from World’s Leading Airline – First Class (Singapore Airlines), to Leading Airlines in Europe (Turkish Airlines), Oceania (Air New Zealand), Asia (Vietnam Airlines) and Mexico & Central America (Copa Airlines).
“We are extremely delighted to be receiving the World Travel Awards for the third consecutive year. This is particularly fitting as we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year,” said Star Alliance CEO, Jeffrey Goh. “These awards are testimony to the great work that more than 400,000 employees across the Star Alliance network do each day in delivering safe and seamless travel, and also to all the customers who have continued to give us and our member carriers their confidence and support.”
Now in its 29th edition, the annual World Travel Awards are based on a worldwide poll of qualified executives working within travel and tourism, as well as travellers.© Travel News Asia
