Extend passenger convenience, connections in Asia and Central America.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN - Star Alliance members EVA Air and Copa Airlines will begin code-sharing on November 4, 2018, making travel to/from Asia and Panama more convenient and extending services for both airlines’ passengers. Under the code-share, Copa passengers can take EVA-operated flights to Taipei from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York. Inbound from Asia, EVA passengers can connect through these same cities to fly Copa to Panama City.

The new code-share gives passengers the convenience and flexibility of more than 40 flights a week from major cities in the United States to Panama City and makes it easier than ever to plan both business and leisure itineraries. It also enhances EVA’s and Copa’s flight networks, allowing both airlines to more smoothly meet passengers’ needs with flights from Taiwan to the U.S. and onward to Panama and vice versa.

In addition to the century-old Panama Canal, tourists to the Central American country can choose from a variety of attractions and activities. The enchanting San Blas Islands, sprinkled along Panama’s northeast coast in the Caribbean Sea, invite scuba diving, gourmet seafood dining and exploring the indigenous Guna Indian lifestyle. Boquete in the Panama highlands offers cooler temperatures and beautiful scenery where Geisha coffee beans, the world’s most expensive, grow. Near the mountain city of Volcano Baru, travelers can go whitewater rafting or hike forested trails punctuated by a variety of wildlife. Panama City, the nation’s capital, fuses history and modernity in a vibrant metropolis where visitors can stroll the old streets of Casco Viejo, a World Heritage Site, or enjoy all the conveniences of a major urban setting.

Since joining Star Alliance in 2013, EVA has steadily added more passenger benefits and conveniences by working with other member airlines to extend routes, increase frequency and give travelers seamless services to every corner of the world. In addition to Copa Airline, EVA codeshares with Avianca on flights to/from Taipei in Asia and San Salvador in Central America.
