The second largest Taiwanese airline EvaAir, which is a Star Alliance member carrier just like Turkish Airlines, started codeshare flights in 2015. And now from March 5, 2016, EvaAir will start its direct flights from Taipei to Istanbul.
When EVA starts daily Taipei – Istanbul flights on March 5, the two airlines will further collaborate to efficiently use Istanbul as a hub for travel to destinations that are even more distant. With the code-shared flights and commercial agreements for beyond Istanbul, EVA will offer passengers more convenient choices to Europe.
The carrier, which will have 4 flights a week, has announced a promotion of 50% off flight upgrades. Infinity MileageLands members can enjoy upgrades for just 50% percent of the mileage normally required.
If you have purchased an eligible ticket class fare and have a confirmed reservation, you will be able to enjoy this offer. You must apply for the upgrade and complete the mileage deduction between Oct 20, 2015 and Mar. 4, 2016. To make an award upgrade reservation and redeem your miles, please call your local EVA Air reservation office. Ticketed passengers with confirmed reservations made via the EVA Air internet booking system can also make award upgrade reservations by logging in to the Infinity MileageLands area of the EVA Air website. Except for the reduced mileage requirement, standard terms and conditions of award upgrades apply.
