SINGAPORE - Singapore Airlines (SIA) will now codeshare on flights to six airports in North America operated by Taiwanese airline EVA Air, in an expansion of their existing codeshare agreement, as announced in a joint statement on Thursday.
The new agreement takes effect on Dec 12, a year after codeshare operations first began between the two Star Alliance members on flights between Singapore and Taipei.
SIA will now also codeshare on EVA Air-operated flights to Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Toronto and Vancouver.
"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 SIA senior vice president of marketing planning Lee Wen Fen.
Mr Glenn Chai, executive vice president of EVA Air;'s corporate planning division, said: "Trans-pacific service is a key market for EVA Air, which we want to grow further. This mutually beneficial partnership gives both Singapore Airlines and EVA Air customers more flexibility with their flight itineraries."
Tickets for the codeshare services go on sale from Dec 12.
