EVA Air and Singapore Airlines customers have begun to enjoy more seamless travel to the United States and Canada through an expanded codeshare agreement between the two carriers. The agreement takes effect on December 12, 2014, the first anniversary of the start of codeshare operations between the two Star Alliance members on flights between Singapore and Taipei. Singapore Airlines currently operates 14 weekly flights on the route while EVA operates seven. Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines now codeshares on EVA-operated flights from Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport to Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Toronto and Vancouver.
“We are delighted with our expanded codeshare agreement with EVA Air. Our growing partnership with EVA Air is another example of our efforts to leverage Star Alliance to expand our network reach and to offer customers travelling to and from North America even more choices and convenience,” said Singapore Airlines Senior Vice President, Marketing and Planning Lee en Fen.
“We’re pleased with our expanded partnership with Singapore Airlines, one of the most respected airlines in our industry. Trans-Pacific service is a key market for EVA and we want to grow it further. This mutually beneficial partnership gives both Singapore Airlines and our passengers more flexibility in flight itineraries. It also demonstrates EVA’s commitment to building strong partnerships with other Star Alliance members,” said EVA Air Executive Vice President, Corporate Planning Division Glenn Chai.
