EVA Air joins Star Alliance


Taiwan’s EVA Air has joined the Star Alliance network, providing its customers with additional travel benefits while helping to strengthen the Alliance’s presence in the Asia/Pacific (APAC) region.

Star Alliance now has eight member carriers based in the APAC region and with EVA Air’s membership, expands its network to Taiwan, offering more travellers greater choice and convenience.

“EVA Air has successfully completed all joining requirements and I can confirm that our Chief Executive Board (CEB) has now unanimously accepted EVA Air into our Alliance,” Star Alliance chief executive Mark Schwab said.

“With the addition of EVA Air to our existing combinations of member carriers and hubs, we further cement our position of providing the strongest network on an international scale to, from and within this ever growing region.”

Travellers on EVA flights will have reciprocal access to the airport lounges of its new Star siblings, along with other perks such as priority check-in, preferred seating and extra luggage allowance, plus point-sharing through EVA's frequent flyer scheme, which has undergone a change of name from Evergreen Club to Infinity MileageLands.

“Star Alliance membership gives us the privilege of serving new customers from all corners of the globe and introducing our passengers to the seamless services and status recognition that the Alliance provides,” EVA Air chief president Austin Cheng said.
