Star Alliance wins World’s Leading Airline Alliance 2023

For the fourth consecutive year, Star Alliance has proudly declared its victory as the World’s Leading Airline Alliance at the esteemed World Travel Awards 2023.

The announcement took place at a Gala ceremony held at Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab on 1 December.

Earlier in the North America edition in August 2023, the Star Alliance Los Angeles airport lounge achieved a remarkable milestone by securing the title of North America’s Leading Airport Lounge for the fourth consecutive year, further solidifying its status as a leader in airport hospitality.

Theo Panagiotoulias, Star Alliance CEO, said: “We are truly honoured to receive the World Travel Awards for the fourth consecutive year. This achievement is a testament to the relentless dedication of employees within the Star Alliance network who strive to provide consistent and seamless travel experiences.”

“Our success is made possible not only by the hard work of our employees across the network, but also by the unwavering confidence and support from our valued customers. We are immensely grateful for the continued trust placed in us and our member carriers.”

The World Travel Awards, now in its landmark 30th edition, aims to recognise, reward and celebrate excellence across various sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries.

The winners are determined through a global poll involving qualified executives in the travel and tourism sector, as well as consumer travel buyers.

Graham E. Cooke, founder of the World Travel Awards, said: “Congratulations to Star Alliance for winning World’s Leading Airline Alliance 2023. This is a remarkable achievement, reflecting how the brand is setting the global aviation alliance benchmark.

“The commitment of the entire Star Alliance team serves as an inspiration to us all,” he added.

In addition to the alliance-level award, several Star Alliance member carriers also claimed individual victories this year. These triumphs further highlight the collective strength and excellence of Star Alliance and its member airlines in delivering unparalleled service to travellers.
