March 29, 2012 New Star Alliance Member EVA airlines announced
EVA Airlines based out of Taipei, Taiwan has been announced as the newest star alliance member. This fills a gap that was left when Shanghai Airlines left the Alliance. EVA will provide another option for trans-pacific flyers. They have departures out of Seattle and Los Angeles to Taiwan.
Star Alliance is well on the way to establishing an Asia gateway in Seattle. Seattle will have Star Alliance departures to TPE, NRT, and ICN. Other Star Alliance will SEA departures to IAH, LAX, SFO, ORD, EWR, YVR, YYC, YYZ, FRA, and IAD.
Seattle continues to expand and will provide a great way for people to find available reward space to Asia.
