Star Alliance passengers can look forward to Gold Track priority clearance at airports

Travel News 01 Dec 2015

Business and first class passengers along with top-tier frequent flyers on Star Alliance airlines will enjoy VIP treatment at the immigration desks of selected airports from next year.

The new Gold Track Immigration program will complement the existing Gold Track security lanes (below) already established at the hubs of many Star Alliance member airlines – a 28-strong roster which includes Air New Zealand, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, Thai and United.

Star Alliance CEO Mark Schwab told Australian Business Traveller on the sidelines of the consortium's six-monthly meeting in Chicago.

Schwab predicts the first Gold Track Immigration lanes will open "at the end of Q1 or the beginning of Q2 next year"
