Thai Airways' regional subsidiary, Thai Smile, is set to become Star Alliance's next Connecting Partner airline. The Connecting Partner model is a program that links smaller airlines to Star Alliance without becoming a member. As a Connecting Partner, Thai Smile won't need to fulfull commercial relationships with all full members but instead partner with a minimun of three only.

Travelers flying on an itinerary that includes a transfer between a Star Alliance member airline and a Connecting Partner will be offered standard Alliance benefits.

Thai Smile is the second airline to join as a Connecting Partner after Shanghai-based Juneyao Airlines.
