Star Alliance Claims World’s Leading Title at WTA 2023

Star Alliance has been awarded the title of World’s Leading Airline Alliance at the World Travel Awards for the fourth consecutive year.

On December 1, 2023, the announcement occurred during a grand ceremony hosted at the renowned Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

The Star Alliance Los Angeles airport lounge has once again been awarded the prestigious title of North America’s Leading Airport Lounge for the fourth year in a row during the August 2023 edition of the event, reaffirming its position as a top player in airport hospitality.

Star Alliance CEO Theo Panagiotoulias conveyed his appreciation for these accolades by expressing his gratitude. He said:

“We are truly honored 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 30th edition of the World Travel Awards seeks to acknowledge, honor, and commemorate exceptional achievements in different areas of the travel, tourism, and hospitality sectors. A worldwide survey, involving knowledgeable executives and travel buyers, is used to determine the winners.

Founder of the World Travel Awards, Graham E. Cooke, 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.”

Several member airlines of Star Alliance achieved individual successes this year, in addition to the alliance-level award. These victories serve as further evidence of the exceptional service and collective prowess of both Star Alliance and its member carriers in catering to travelers’ needs.

Star Alliance has been garnering awards left and right this year, including a SkyTrax award.
