In case you haven’t heard, EVA Airways has officially joined Star Alliance yesterday! This is great news for Asia travelers since it’s one more option to redeem and earn points on a SA carrier. They only drawback for HK travelers is that you’ll probably need to transfer through Taipei since that’s their only destination non-stop from HKG.
Any EVA Infinity Mileagelands partners can also now redeem flights on Star Alliance, so great news for our Taiwanese friends.
To promote themselves joining, they are offering a weekly free ticket drawing.
Unfortunately EVA, and the other Taiwan airline China Airlines both have less than desirable booking web sites. I hope they spruce it up soon.
