When will AVIANCA join Star Alliance?

Any news on the date in which AVIANCA will officially join Star Alliance? I have a round trip with them in mid-April and do not know if I will be able to credit the miles to my A3 M&B account.

No news. But it won't happen until mid April.

Yeah, Avianca-Taca and Copa for that matter all seem to be ready to go for the alliance. The extra month of wait to see what happens with LATAM probably isn't that big of a sacrifice. As a bonus, it gives Avianca-Taca additional time to bring Aerogal and Avianca Brazil up to speed and into the alliance as well.
