TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Star Alliance hosted a special event called "The Journey Begins with the Stars" recently, featuring numerous games and activities to promote the exclusive services available with the Star Alliance.
Participants started playing games by naming any member airline of the Star Alliance. After that, each player walked through a realistic security gate and customized X-ray scanner, shared their status on Facebook, answered a question about the Star Alliance and received a special prize and a special Star sticker. The first 500 participants who downloaded the Star Alliance Navigator app also received a mystery gift.
Established in 1997, the Star Alliance is the leading global airline network with the highest number of member airlines, according to a press release. As the world's foremost aviation alliance, it offers international travelers a network unlike any other, bringing 26 member airlines together to provide over 18,043 flights every day to nearly 1,300 destinations in more than 193 countries around the world. Recipient of numerous awards, the alliance is also the only network that covers airlines from all five continents, providing a complete choice of flights.
Members of the Star Alliance can access global VIP lounges as well as check-in and ticketing services provided by all member airlines. They can earn mileage and redeem points with all member airlines. Further, to provide complete and convenient services to Star Alliance members, the exclusive new Terminal 2 at London Heathrow Airport, the future home of Star Alliance at Britain's premier aviation hub, will be in operation this year. All member airlines will be represented there by November 2014. Equipped with the most advanced facilities tailored to the needs of frequent travelers, Terminal 2 offers an elegant space with a variety of boutiques and bars as well as integrated services from baggage claims to flight connections. Star Alliance members may relax in the convenient and comfortable travel experience.
In order to ensure members can access all flights offered by the member airlines as well as complete information on global airports, the Star Alliance introduced the Star Alliance Navigator app to ensure a convenient, smooth and efficient worldwide travel experience. The app features complete information from worldwide lounge locations, local weather at the airports, city guides and more. Passengers may obtain the flexible and dependable connection services even in cases of flight delays, with minimal inconvenience from the changes.
