So, Star Alliance grows to 28 members now with Agean Airlines confirming it’s membership, expanding the influence of Star across Greece now, 12 months since it was announced they were joining up.
Aegean Airlines operates a fleet of 30 aircraft covering a total of 54 domestic and international routes on more than 150 daily flights. This is made up of 26 Domestic routes and 28 international routes, delivered with 22 A32x series aircraft, 6 BAe146’s and 2 ATR’s.
This opens up Greece and a quite a few destinations to Star Alliance users, and should improve even further when Olympic Air merges with Aegean Airlines (expected approval September 2010 and integration a year later)
But the question is simple – whilst Star Alliance is continue to grow like mad, will there be a point when 1) Star Alliance is too large or 2) Star Alliance fails to add “quality” carriers to it’s fleet?
