Following the deployment of a similar project by rival SkyTeam, the Star Alliance has started to add priority lanes to the security checkpoint for its elite members and premium passengers.
Identified with signs labeled Gold Track and showing the Star logo, the expedited security access lanes are currently available at 21 airports worldwide and will soon be launched “at airports across our network,” Star said.
In the U.S., they’re already installed at Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Houston Bush Intercontinental, Los Angeles, New York JFK, Newark, Seattle and Washington Dulles.
They can be used by Star Alliance Gold Status holders no matter which class of service they’re flying in, and by first class and business class ticket holders on any Star airline.
The Star Alliance includes United, Lufthansa, Air Canada, Swiss, Singapore Airlines, ANA, SAS and several others.
