ADDIS ABABA – Star Alliance CEO expressed his “extreme delight” after the network won the World’s Leading Airlines Alliance at the World Travel Awards for the third consecutive year.
In addition, nine of the Star Alliance member carriers also came away as individual winners in 21 categories at the World Travel Awards 2022.
“We are extremely delighted to be receiving the World Travel Awards for the third consecutive year,” said Star Alliance CEO Jeffrey Goh on Monday.
“This is particularly fitting as we celebrate our 25th anniversary this year.”
The World Travel Awards’ recognition come after Star Alliance’s triumph at the Skytrax 2022 World Airline Awards earlier in September. The alliance recieved the World’s Best Airline Alliance while eight of its member carriers including Ethiopian Airlines won big in several other categories too.
“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,” noted its CEO Goh.
Now in its 29th edition, the World Travel Awards was established to acknowledge, and reward across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries.
The awards are given 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 by voting it the World’s Leading Airline Alliance 2022,” said Graham E Cooke, Founder of the World Travel Awards.
The Star Alliance, established in 1997, has many of the world’s top aviation companies and regional airlines on its network, which currently offers more than 10,000 daily flights to almost 1,200 airports in 184 countries.
