Christopher Korenke, Vice President Commercial, Star Alliance said: “The Micronesia Airpass again demonstrates the benefits only an airline alliance can provide. Travellers visiting Micronesia in the past had limited choice of air travel and had to purchase separate tickets on different airlines to get to this part of the world. Through the Star Alliance network, passengers can now travel on any of the member carriers serving the designated gateways and connect to the Continental Airlines and United network in Micronesia, all at excellent value for money.”
Fares are set according to booking class and distance travelled, starting at US$ 75* for flights up to 150 miles and rising to US$ 375* for flights covering between 2001 and 2250 miles. Itineraries can cover economy class travel of up to three months, must comprise at least three flights and need to include at least two 24 hour stops at different destinations.
Customers interested in purchasing a Micronesia Airpass should contact any Star Alliance member carrier or their travel agent. Further information can also be found on www.staralliance.com
In addition to the Micronesia Airpass, customers can travel to further destinations in and around the Pacific using either the Star Alliance Round-the-World fare, the Circle Pacific Fare, the Asia Airpass or the South Pacific Airpass. In total, Star Alliance now offers 15 different fare products world-wide.
