List of Airline Alliances (updated May 17, 2022)

Star Alliance just celebrated its 25 year anniversary this month. As a result, we thought it would be a good idea to update our airline alliance rundown post.

There are 3 worldwide major airline alliances, as well as 3 regional alliances that we will mention further down the post.

We’ve built up quite an archive of posts to track the historic changes of airline alliances over the years:

Major Airline Alliances
