Star Alliance received the title of World’s Best Airline Alliance at this year's Skytrax World Airline Awards. The Alliance’s newly launched Paris Charles de Gaulle airport lounge has also won the World’s Best Airline Alliance Lounge title in its first year, the press release said. Theo Panagiotoulias, CEO, Star Alliance, received the awards at a ceremony held at the Fairmont Windsor Park, UK.

“We are humbled to learn that millions of customers voted and made us the best yet again. Not only does this acknowledge the effort we dedicate to making customer journeys seamless, but it also motivates us further to achieve more,” Panagiotoulias said.

He congratulated thousands of member airline employees across the Star Alliance network and said, “The commitment and effort of every employee at Star Alliance and member airlines throughout a promising 2023 have culminated in this award. I proudly accept this honour on their behalf and commend them for their dedication. I encourage them to keep aiming for excellence this year and in the future.”

Star Alliance and its member airlines offer the widest network in the sky. The Star Alliance lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) opened its doors in October 2023. The facility spans 1,300 square meters and is located in Terminal 1. The lounge offers passenges runway views, a welcome bar and an immersive wine section.

Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax said, "We congratulate Star Alliance on a fabulous double achievement at this year’s awards, winning the World's Best Airline Alliance and the World's Best Airline Alliance Lounge categories. The latest Star Alliance lounge at Terminal 1, Paris CDG Airport has quickly established itself as a flagship facility and a customer favourite.”

16 Star Alliance member airlines received 47 awards across individual categories, including World’s Best First Class, Best Business Class Catering and several best regional airline awards.
