Star Alliance puts Convention Plus online

Star Alliance is now the first global airline alliance to offer online booking and ticketing to convention delegates. The new booking tool allows the convention organizers to direct their participants to a dedicated online booking and ticketing site for all air travel contracted under Star Alliance Conventions Plus. Christopher Korenke, vice-president commercial for Star Alliance said: “The Star Alliance Conventions Plus booking platform is an integral part of our strategy to further enlarge the scope of our online distribution channel. We are proud to be the first airline alliance to offer convention organizers a simplified and streamlined manner of displaying available air travel options through the web, with delegates being able to book directly from the site.” Star Alliance’s new online booking tool complements the existing traditional fulfilment channels and allows conference organizers to use the new tool to inform the delegates of travel options offered by the participating airlines for the selected convention. Delegates can then check real time availability and fares for their required itinerary, book the appropriate flights, and purchase the corresponding ticket. Go to for additional information.
