Star Shines Over Latin America

STAR ALLIANCE is to expand its global coverage after it was revealed in November that both Avianca-TACA and Panama’s Copa Airlines have been accepted as future members of the grouping.
The combined network of the two airline groups will give Star a more prominent footprint in Central America, the Caribbean and the northern and western regions of South America, as well as additional direct connections between Latin America and cities in Europe
Avianca-TACA and Copa will bring 46 new destinations to the alliance and once integration is complete (planned for mid-2012), the customers of the 31 alliance members will have access to more than 22,500 daily flights serving 1,292 destinations in 188 countries.
