EVA Air and Air New Zealand in code-share deal
Taiwan airline EVA Air and Air New Zealand have initiated a code-share agreement to expand the airlines’ networks in North-East Asia and Oceania.
Passengers of the two Star Alliance member airlines will have access to code-share options operated by EVA Air from Taipei to major destinations in Japan and South Korea.
Passengers will also have code-share options from Taipei to Auckland and onto major cities in New Zealand, as well as Brisbane to Auckland and Christchurch, with flights operated by Air New Zealand.
From the second half of December 2018, passengers will be able to travel on the code-share flights.
Albert Liao, EVA Air executive vice president of corporate panning division, said: “The new code-share agreement will further strengthen Star Alliance’s flight network and offer passengers enhanced options to plan both business and leisure itineraries from Taiwan and New Zealand.
“With just one easy stop in Taipei, passengers can take advantage of EVA Air’s flexible flight schedule to conveniently fly onward to Japan and South Korea.”
Nick Judd, Air New Zealand’s chief network strategy and alliances officer, said: “Air New Zealand is excited to be working closely with EVA Air, an airline well-respected in the market for its aircraft and customer offering.
“This agreement with EVA Air will leverage the strengths of each airline’s network, ultimately making travel easier and more convenient for customers.”
