Avianca Brazil joins the Star Alliance, the largest airline group in the world

Avianca Brazil officially joined the Star Alliance, the largest group of airlines in the world. From now on, the Brazilian company’s flights have agreements with other 28 airlines, which together cover 1.330 airports in 190 countries. It is possible to make connecting domestic flights of Avianca for international flights from 12 airlines: Air Canada, Air China, Avianca (Colombia), Copa, Ethiopian, Lufthansa, Singapore, South African, Swiss, TAP, Turkish and United, which are the companies flying to Brazil.

Another important novelty is that as of today clients from the program Amigo can issue tickets to all 28 member carriers flying and accumulate points in each of them. The opposite is also true: the flights of Avianca can now render miles in several different programs and one can also issue domestic tickets.

To celebrate the date, the company held an event at the Air Base of Sao Paulo, next to Guarulhos airport, which brought together presidents and representatives of all the participating Star Alliance member carriers. Also, it was unveiled a new Airbus A320-branded global alliance.

“We are proud to now be part of the largest airline alliance in the world. It took us two years of dedication to this challenge. We changed our technology platform, trained professionals and improved internal processes to ensure the best services to our customers. We are thrilled to put Brazil back on the map of Star Alliance”, said the president of Avianca Brazil, Jose Efromovich.
