Shenzen Airlines to join Star Alliance

Shenzen Airlines is to become a member of the Star Alliance after approvals by the group’s chief executive board. The new addition is part of the alliance’s strategy to expand its network in future growth markets including China. “Shenzhen Airlines is the fifth largest airline in China operating from the fifth busiest airport in the country,” said Jaan Albrecht, CEO of Star Alliance. “In conjunction with Air China, we will be growing our customer offer especially in the southern part of China.” The new entry will add five new destinations to Star Alliance’s network and it will be fully integrated by the end of 2012.
