This agreement will lead to decreased costs, enhanced travel quality and favourable conditions for later improvements to the agreement with Star Alliance.
The countries covered by this agreement are: Sweden, France, Germany, Belgium, England, Spain, Poland, USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, South Korea, China*) and India.
At a ceremony on November 28, Jörgen Lindegård, CEO of Scandinavian Airlines and Stephan Hylander and Ulf Norman of Volvo Group NAP, signed the agreement, which in many ways is unique.
It is the most comprehensive agreement Star Alliance has ever signed with an individual group of companies. Beside the fact that the new fare structure is based on the Volvo Group traveller’s patterns and needs, it will also in the near future add values that will enhance the personal travel quality when Star Alliance is utilized.
On the routes, covered by this agreement, the following airlines **) can be used:
SAS, Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, British Midlands, Spanair, United Airlines, US Airways, Varig, Asiana Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways.
"We are very happy that the fares and conditions are valid on a majority of the Star Alliance airlines. This is unique", says Stephan Hylander, Senior Strategic Buyer at Volvo Group NAP.
All fares and conditions are accessible through the Volvo approved travel agencies for individual business trips in these countries. The travel agencies are informed and have access to our terms through the booking systems.
