Star Alliance has launched a Micronesia Airpass
allowing passengers to purchase up to 10 flights on the
Continental Airlines and United network across Micronesia, all in
a single ticket.

Christopher Korenke, Vice
President Commercial, Star Alliance said, “The Micronesia Airpass
again demonstrates the benefits only an airline alliance can
provide. Travellers visiting Micronesia in the past had limited
choice of air travel and had to purchase separate tickets on
different airlines to get to this part of the world. Through the
Star Alliance network, passengers can now travel on any of the
member carriers serving the designated gateways and connect to the
Continental Airlines and United network in Micronesia, all at
excellent value for money.”
