Star Alliance continues to open renovated branded lounges in key markets where no member carriers have a main hub.

On May 7, the global airline alliance re-opened its branded lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport in France.

The lounge was first opened in 2008.

The Star Alliance member airlines that operate from Paris CDG Terminal 1 are: Aegean Airlines, Air China, Japan’s ANA, Asiana Airlines, EgyptAir, Taiwan’s EVA Air, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Turkish Airlines and Chicago-based United Airlines.
