TAIPEI, Taiwan — EVA Air and Singapore Airlines customers can now enjoy more seamless travel to the United States and Canada, as a result of an expanded codeshare agreement between the two carriers.

Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines now codeshares on EVA Air-operated flights beyond Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport to Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Toronto and Vancouver.

The new agreement takes effect on Dec. 12, 2014, which also marks the first anniversary of the start of codeshare operations between the Star Alliance partners on flights between Singapore and Taipei.

Singapore Airlines currently operates 14 weekly flights on the route, while EVA Air operates seven flights.

“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 choice and convenience,” said Singapore Airlines Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Ms Lee Wen Fen.

“We’re pleased with our expanded partnership with Singapore Airlines, one of the most respected airlines of the industry. Trans-Pacific service is a key market for EVA Air that we want to grow further. This mutually beneficial partnership gives both Singapore Airlines’ and EVA’s passengers more flexibility in their flight itineraries. It also demonstrates EVA’s commitment to build strong partnerships with Star Alliance members,” said EVA Air Executive Vice President, Corporate Planning Division Glenn Chai.

Tickets for the codeshare services will be open for sale from Dec. 12, 2014.
