Star Alliance member carriers last week welcomed the alliance’s 25th member, Continental Airlines. Having joined the world's largest global airline alliance, customers will have seamless travel options with Continental offering a broader network across the globe.
The Star Alliance network aims to provide fast and convenient connections for customers needing to transfer between flights of different Star Alliance member carriers. Effective immediately, through check-in from the originating airport is available for any itinerary involving a Continental flight in conjunction with another Star Alliance flight.
OnePass members may accumulate and redeem miles on Continental and 24 Star Alliance member airlines, while Elite members will be recognized with added benefits around the world. Going forward with over 800 locations, the Star Alliance lounge network is the largest in the world.
