Star Alliance Instagram account hits 20k followers

FRANKFURT, Sep 17 - Star Alliance's Instagram account, launched just four months ago on the Alliance`s 18th birthday, has already picked up 20,000 followers.

Instagram is a social media service focusing on the sharing of photos. Posts can be made only from a mobile phone, not a desktop, thus encouraging sharing on the move.

In our experience so far, photos that show an inside view on aviation are particularly successful.

We can be found at and encourage Instagrammers to use the hashtag #staralliance so we can find pictures relevant to us.

Please take a look! If you would like to contribute photos, we would be delighted. But please ensure you are complying with your airline's social media policy.
