Star Alliance Enhances Round The World Fare Product
A whirlwind globetrotting trip, stopping only at two destinations for at least 24 hours, is now possible using selected Star Alliance Round the World (RTW) fares.
Up to now, a minimum of three stopovers was required for all RTW tickets. This change increases the number of itineraries available under the RTW product for travel on the Star Alliance network.
Star Alliance RTW tickets can be booked online at www.staralliance.com/en/bookfly.
The “Star Alliance Book & Fly” tool is available in English, German and Japanese. It allows customers to plan their RTW journey from the comfort of their own home, 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
Those wishing to share their travel plans can do so via email or the integrated social media functionality. Once all flights have been booked, electronic tickets can be easily issued via the online tool.
The total price of an RTW ticket is dependent on class of travel, the Page 2 of 4 precise itinerary, mileage and routing selected, as well as currency exchange rate fluctuations.

Stopovers of at least 24 hours must be made in a minimum of two cities and the overall itinerary may include up to 15 stops.
As part of offering greater choice to RTW travellers, certain RTW special fares are also available, requiring at least 3 stopovers and allowing a maximum number of stops that range from 5 to 12.
The Star Alliance RTW fares are available for travel in First, Business, Premium Economy or Economy Class and are valid for 12 months.
The Star Alliance network was established in 1997 as the first truly global airline alliance to offer worldwide reach, recognition and seamless service to the international traveller.
