Star Alliance CEO's Millbrook-bound
More than two dozen chief executives of some of the world’s top airlines are flying into Queenstown next month for the first Star Alliance conference to be held in New Zealand.
The annual conference 12-14DEC will combine chief executive and alliance management board meetings at Millbrook Resort.
About 80 delegates representing 29 airline members are expected, with more than 30 international media representatives covering the three-day event. Up to 200 guests are to attend the gala dinner on the Monday evening and other events and activities were being planned.
Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe said it was the first time the country had hosted the “significant” conference.
“It is a reflection of the strength of Air New Zealand’s influence in the alliance that members have agreed to come here".
