A new codeshare agreement between EVA Airways and United Airlines, beginning Aug. 11, will allow EVA passengers an easier connection from Asia to the Midwestern and Southern regions of the U.S., and those flying United from Cleveland and Houston more access to Pacific Rim destinations. The airlines will extend these codeshared services to more domestic and international destinations in the future.
The new codeshare applies to United flights from Cleveland and Houston to EVA’s three West Coast gateways -- Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. EVA flies between Taipei and the three West Coast cities daily, providing as many as 35 flights a week. EVA codes will be carried by United-operated flights on Cleveland-Los Angeles, Cleveland-San Francisco, Houston-Los Angeles, Houston-San Francisco and Houston-Seattle routes.
Both airlines’ passengers now have the convenience of one-ticket connections and through-checked luggage from these routes to EVA’s destinations throughout Asia and China. As a future Star Alliance member, EVA is integrating services and preparing to join the airline industry’s leading network. Its cooperation with United, a founding Star Alliance member, will likely resemble future cooperation with other airlines in the group.
