Juneyao Airlines, one of the leading private-owned airlines in mainland China and the first “Connecting Partner” of Star Alliance, has started a codeshare partnership with EVA Air on routes across the Taiwan Straits from March 26, 2018.
The codeshare cooperation will bring more traveling choices for passengers flying across the Taiwan Strait, and will have a positive impact on the expansion of Juneyao’s network in Asia, warming up the relationship between the Chinese mainland and Taiwan.
According to the codeshare agreement, Juneyao Airlines and EVA Air will place their own codes on flights operated by partners connecting Shanghai Pudong – Taipei Taoyuan and Shanghai Pudong – Kaohsiung. Meanwhile, Juneyao Airlines will continue its FFP offerings on connecting flights providing priority check-in, priority baggage handling, priority boarding, extra baggage allowance, and lounge access for Star Alliance Elite members, including those from EVA Air.
Based in Shanghai and Nanjing, Juneyao Airlines operates 110 routes linking major cities in China as well as surrounding countries. It will further launch intercontinental flights after receiving Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in late 2018.
EVA Air flies a fleet of more than 70 Boeing and Airbus aircraft to more than 60 international destinations throughout Asia, Oceania, Europe and North America with gateways in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Vancouver.
