Star Alliance has been named the World’s Leading Airline Alliance for the third consecutive year at the recent World Travel Awards (WTA) Grand Final Gala.

Now in its 29th edition, the World Travel Awards was established to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Results of the WTA are based on a worldwide poll of qualified executives working within travel and tourism, and the consumer travel buyer.

“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,” said Founder of WTA, Graham Cooke.

Earlier this year at the North America 2022 edition of the awards, the Star Alliance Los Angeles airport lounge also retained the award for North America’s Leading Airport Lounge for the third year running.

“We are extremely delighted to be receiving the World Travel Awards for the third consecutive year,” Star Alliance CEO Jeffrey Goh said, adding that the alliance is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

“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,” Goh added.

In addition to these two awards won at the alliance level, a number of Star Alliance member carriers also came away as individual winners this year. Nine of them won awards in 21 categories, ranging from World’s Leading Airline – First Class, to Leading Airlines in Europe, Oceania, Asia and Mexico & Central America.

The Star Alliance network was established in 1997 as the first global airline alliance. Greek Aegean Airlines is among its member airlines. Overall, the Star Alliance network currently offers more than 10,000 daily flights to almost 1,200 airports in 184 countries.
