Gold Status Benefits

Where one special travel experience leads to another


We want to make sure your travel experience feels special. And with your Star Alliance Gold Status you’ll be recognised across your entire journey, from the moment you arrive at the airport right through to your final destination.

 

You can move effortlessly through priority check-in, with no charge for extra baggage, before enjoying a glass of bubbly in the lounge. Then take your seat ahead of the crowd and find your priority baggage waiting for you at the other end. With Gold Status it’s all about you enjoying your travel experience every step of the way.

 

How to get Gold Status

You will automatically be given Star Alliance Gold Status as soon as you reach premium status with your frequent flyer programme*.
