EVA joins Star Alliance

The 19-member Star Alliance, which includes Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines, has officially welcomed EVA Airlines of Taiwan as a formal member. 

Founded just over 16 years ago, Star Alliance has progressively built its presence in Asia/Pacific and now has eight member carriers based in this region, which continues to show a growing demand in air travel, posting 5.2% growth in 2012.

“Star Alliance has since its inception had a strong presence in Asia / Pacific.  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.  We are looking forward to welcoming new customers from Taiwan and serving more travellers on the expanding Cross-Straits market”, said Mark Schwab, Chief Executive Officer of Star Alliance.

A focus city for EVA Air outside Taiwan is Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport, with westerly connections to most of its European destinations including London.  It is the second largest Taiwanese airline, next in size to its main rival, China Airlines. www.evaair.com www.staralliance.com
