Airline member requirements

In order to become an official member of SkyTeam, aspiring members first need to meet strict safety, quality, IT and customer service standards. Over 100 membership requirements cover different areas.

Some examples are:

  • IOSA registration
  • Lounge access
  • Elite recognition

We ensure consistency by having teams of expert auditors from member airlines perform audits, checking in detail whether the membership requirements are fulfilled before an airline can join SkyTeam.
