• Lounge Access
• Fast Track Security
• Additional Baggage
• Priority Check-in
• Priority Boarding

Juneyao Airlines today became the first airline to expand the Star Alliance network as a Connecting Partner. Under the alliance’s partnership concept, the Shanghai-based airline now offers Star Alliance passengers new transfer opportunities at either of Shanghai’s two airports - Pudong International and Hongqiao International.

“With Juneyao Airlines as a Connecting Partner we have achieved two important goals,” said Jeffrey Goh, CEO Star Alliance. “First, as an alliance we can offer regional airlines an attractive way to connect to our global alliance network, without requiring full membership. Going forward, this will enable us to strategically enhance our network. Second, with Juneyao Airlines we strengthen our market position in Shanghai, a city which is already served by 17 of our member airlines and which will now offer even better connectivity to our customers.”

Star Alliance member airlines Air Canada, Air China, Air India, Air New Zealand, ANA, Asiana, Austrian, Ethiopian Airlines, EVA Air, Lufthansa, SAS, Shenzhen Airlines, Singapore Airlines, SWISS, THAI, Turkish Airlines and United operate more than 1,600 weekly services (874 weekly domestic flights and 811 weekly international flights) in and out of the Chinese metropolis, serving 64 destinations (25 domestic and 39 international) in 19 countries.

 Juneyao Airlines now offers Star Alliance customers the option of connecting to more than 1,700 weekly flights to 69 destinations in eight countries and regions through Shanghai.

“In our 11 year history we have grown into a medium-sized airline operating 62 Airbus A320-family aircraft. Being selected as a Connecting Partner by Star Alliance for providing additional connectivity through Shanghai is recognition of our dedication to service. We hope that Star Alliance customers will enjoy our hospitality”, said Wang Junjin, Chairman Juneyao Airlines.

The Connecting Partner Model allows regional, low-cost or hybrid airlines to link to the Star Alliance network without having to become a full member. For customers this gives access to additional travel options beyond the current 1,300 airports served by the alliance’s 28 member airlines.

Connecting Partners also enter into bilateral commercial agreements with selected Star Alliance member airlines, which may include Frequent Flyer Programme based privileges.

In the case of Juneyao Airlines, Frequent Flyer Members of Air Canada, Air China, EVA Air, Singapore Airlines and United will be able to earn and burn miles when travelling on the Chinese airline
