EVA joins Star Alliance
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.
