Star Alliance 5th Anniversary Celebration

To celebrate the Star Alliance’s 5th anniversary this month, Singapore Airlines will be offering KrisFlyer members the opportunity to earn 55,555 bonus miles if they fly with Singapore Airlines and any other four Star Alliance airlines from 14 May to 7 July 2002.

The promotion is open to all new and existing KrisFlyer members. The bonus miles will be automatically credited to members’ Krisflyer accounts six weeks after the end of the promotion.

Singapore Airlines’ General Manager New Zealand C W Foo said, “this is an exceptionally good offer for Singapore Airlines’ customers. The bonus miles translate into a free return economy class airfare from New Zealand to Singapore, Bangkok, Bali or Kuala Lumpur.”

The Star Alliance was formed in May 1997. Singapore Airlines, the alliance’s latest addition, joined in April 2000. Today, Star Alliance stands out as the world’s most effective global airline alliance.

Beside Singapore Airlines stands a formidable partnership of 13 airlines: Air Canada, Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, Austrian Airlines, bmi british midland, Lauda-Air, Lufthansa, Mexicana, SAS, Thai Airways International, Tyrolean Airways, United Airlines and Varig Brazilian Airlines.
