What is Star Alliance?
Star Alliance is the world’s first and largest global airline alliance, headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It was founded in 1997 by five founding airlines, Air Canada, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines, Thai Airways International, and United Airlines. Star Alliance has since expanded and now has 28 member airlines with more than 21,100 daily departures combined. These flights reach 1,356 airports in 193 countries, with an annual passenger number of 678.5 million.
