SINGAPORE  - September 23, 2022 - Star Alliance has reclaimed the title of World’s Best   Airline  Alliance  at the   prestigious Skytrax 2022  World  Airline  Awards.  The Alliance’s  famed  Los Angeles  lounge  has also retained the award for  World’s  Best Airline Alliance Lounge for the  sixth  year running. The awards were received by Star Alliance CEO  Jeffrey Goh  at  a  ceremony held  at  the  historic Langham Hotel   in London.

 Commenting on the win, Mr Goh said: “We  are elated to learn that millions of flyers around the  world have  put their  trust in Star Alliance yet again  and  have  recognised the  exceptional value  the alliance  offers through their  journey. As we  celebrate our

25th anniversary this year, the recognition means even more to us.”

Mr  Goh  also took this opportunity to thank the  unwavering efforts of the  team and continued: “As we navigate through one of the most difficult periods for our industry, it is the  grit  and  hard  work of  the  Star  Alliance team and  the  staff of  our  member carriers that  has enabled seamless travel  despite constantly changing environment. I receive this honour on their behalf.”

 Star  Alliance  is  dedicated  to  a  multi-dimensional  strategy to  elevate customer experience, built on  the pillars of  digitalisation of  the  journey, unmatched  loyalty benefits and  industry-first innovations. Recently Star  Alliance extended its network with  the  Intermodal  Partnership  model, which intelligently combines air travel  with other transport ecosystems. Launched in July 2022 with  the  German rail network, Deutsche Bahn,  passengers can  conveniently book combined air and  rail journeys on a single ticket.

Known as “the Oscars of the aviation industry”, the Skytrax  World Airline Awards are independent and  impartial awards decided through international customer voting. Passengers with  over  100 nationalities participated in the 2021-22 survey, with  14.32 million  eligible  entries counted in the  results. The  survey was  also  provided  in six major international languages.

Back  in 2005 when the  World's Best  Airline Alliance category was  introduced, Star Alliance was  the  first alliance  to achieve the  title,  winning it multiple times in the following years.  More recently, it held  the  top position for  four  consecutive years 2016-2019.

Edward  Plaisted CEO   of   Skytrax  said:   "We   congratulate  Star   Alliance  and   its member carriers on the award for the World's Best  Airline Alliance once again, voted for  by  passengers across the  globe. We  also  congratulate them on  the  coveted Best  Airline  Alliance  Lounge recognition for  the  Los  Angeles International  Airport, sixth year running. This is a great achievement for the alliance,  and a great source of pride for all stakeholders."

 Complementing  the  Alliance  awards, eight Star  Alliance  member carriers received top  ranks  in 28  award categories this  year,  ranging from  World’s  Best First  Class and World's Best  Airline Cabin  Cleanliness to several best regional airline awards.
