Qantas to end codeshare flights with Eva Air

By David Flynn, September 24 2012

Qantas will end its codeshare agreement with Taipei's Eva Air from March 2013.

In an advisory for travel agents, Qantas says it will "continue to offer a range of fare products servicing the Australia/Taipei market via Hong Kong and Shanghai, connecting with Cathay Pacific and Dragon Air."

Qantas has recently revealed it will terminate codeshare flights with Cathay Pacific and Air France next year when its new alliance with Emirates launches in April 2013.

Meanwhile EVA Air, which has been accepted into the Star Alliance family and expects to assume full membership by the middle of 2013, is said to be examining regular flights between Sydney and Taipei.

EVA abandoned Sydney in early 2006 and currently lists Brisbane as its only Australian port.

Before anyone else with an eye for details asks: yes, we know that it's "Dragonair" not "Dragon Air".

I doubt that's a possibility as EVA don't have much to offer Virgin in regards to expanding their virtual network. I'd much more like to see a relationship between Virgin and Air China or Virgin and China Southern.

Air China would fit nicely, being able to expand the network in North Asia without overlapping SQ or EY codeshares. China Southern seem to be a bit too agressive with their Canton route versus EY's Falcon route.

China Eastern is out of the question for its affiliation with Qantas.

TPE is not served by EK either, I'd like to know the reasons to end codeshare with EVA.
