Star Alliance has three different Circle Fares on offer: Circle Asia, Circle North Asia and Circle Pacific. These fares are designed to facilitate travel between destinations across the Pacific Rim using various Star Alliance member carriers. The Circle Asia Fare allows travel between South East Asia, North Asia and the South West Pacific, while the Circle North Asia Fare is for travel between Japan, Korea, Mainland China (including Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR). Taking customers the furthest is the Circle Pacific Fare, which allows travel between Asia, Australasia and the Pacific Coast of Canada and the USA. Customers select the destinations covered by the respective Circle Fare, creating a personalised circular itinerary. The fare is calculated by the total distance travelled and cabin class, whereby passengers have the choice of purchasing First, Business or Economy Class. Travel needs to begin and end in the same country. Further fare details and conditions can be found at: www.staralliance.com.
The online booking option for Circle Fares follows the successful introduction of “Book & Fly” over a year ago. “Book & Fly” allows customers to plan, book and purchase Round-the-World Tickets on www.staralliance.com. In addition to English, the Japanese language option was added to “Book & Fly” earlier this year.
