Benefits on Star Alliance carriers

Every time you fly with a Star Alliance member airline, you earn points towards your status. Once you obtain your Silver or Gold status, you will be automatically given the additional benefits across the network whilst you travel.


Gold members

The Star Alliance Gold Status benefits include,
network wide, all of the following:

  • Priority airport check-in
    Allows you to check-in through the Priority check-in counters. With shorter queues checking-in, you can get to the lounge a little sooner.
  • Extra bagage allowance
    An additional 20 kg (44 pounds) where the weight concept applies, or one additional piece of luggage where the piece concept applies.
  • Priority baggage handling
    Your bags get priority treatment and are among the first to be unloaded, which means you can be one of the first in line for a taxi/shuttle bus.
  • Airport lounge access
    Available worldwide for you and a friend* when you travel with any Star Alliance member airline, regardless of your class of travel.
  • Priority reservations waitlisting
