As reported late last year, EVA Airways has been looking to join an alliance and it appears they’ll eventually become a full-fledged member of Star Alliance in 2013.
Speaking with the Australian Business Traveller today, a spokesperson said:
A formal announcement between the airline and Star is expected this Thursday in Taipei, the carrier’s home base.
Curious to know the airline’s gateways from North America, I looked ’em up and see they have daily (or better) service from Los Angeles and San Francisco to Taipei, operate four times weekly from JFK and Seattle, and three times weekly from Toronto and Vancouver.
It will be great to have another airline partner to redeem my MileagePlus miles with when traveling internationally. Now I just need to read up on some trip reports to see how they compare to the likes of Asiana and Cathay Pacific.
