Coinciding with the 18th anniversary of Star Alliance, our member carriers in Brazil recognised their 18 largest and most important travel agency partners. The luncheon event at Arola Vintetres restaurant in the Tivoli area of Sao Paulo was attended by leading names in the national tourism industry and received significant, positive travel media coverage. The 13 member airlines which comprise the Country Steering Council (CSC) Brazil organised the event, awarding unique Star Alliance-branded recognition trophy to the winners.

"In addition to celebrating another successful year of operations in Brazil, we took the opportunity to honour our partner agencies, key contributors to the good results we have achieved in the national and international scene," said spokesperson Ian Gillespie, chair of CSC Brazil and sales director of Avianca International ex Brazil. “The collective presence of our members here demonstrates to our trade partners the unification of high quality products that we bring to the Brazilian traveller."
