Star Alliance enhances Round The World fare product

A whirlwind globetrotting trip, stopping only at two destinations for at least 24 hours, is now possible using selected Star Alliance Round the World (RTW) fares. Up to now, a minimum of three stopovers was required for all RTW tickets. This change increases the number of itineraries available under the RTW product for travel on the Star Alliance network.

“By enabling round the world travel with only two stopovers, we are increasing the attractiveness of the Star Alliance Round the World fare product. Customers will now find it easier to build their bespoke routing choosing from the vast offer provided by our 28 member airlines, operating more than 18,400 daily flights, connecting 1,300 destinations in 191 countries”, said Janice Antonson, Vice President, Commercial and Communications, Star Alliance.

Some examples of two stopover RTW itineraries are:

  • Stockholm - New York - Tokyo - Stockholm
  • Vancouver - Seoul - Frankfurt - Vancouver
  • Beijing - Los Angeles - London - Beijing
  • Sydney - Delhi - San Francisco - Sydney
