Star Alliance Australia CSC Chair Craig McCarthy says that the core values Young has displayed throughout his career make him a perfect fit for the world’s most experienced airline alliance.

“Gordon has a proven and respected ability to forge lasting networks, a genuine commitment to customer service and a passion for helping others by sharing his knowledge and experience,” says McCarthy.

“Those are some of the same principles that have always underpinned the Star Alliance brand.”

Star Alliance is looking forward to number of exciting developments in 2014, including the expansion of the Alliance’s global network to include Air India and Avianca Brazil, along with the opening of Heathrow’s Terminal 2, a state-of-the-art facility that in June will become home to all 23 Star Alliance member airlines operating at the UK’s largest airport.
