Eva Air launches third new route for 2016
EVA Air has launched a third new flight route for 2016, connecting Taiwan’s capital Taipei with Chicago in the USA.
The airline has already launched two new direct, nonstop routes from Taiwan this year – to Istanbul in Turkey and Cebu in the Philippines. Both routes were introduced in March; Istanbul with four weekly flights, while Cebu has a daily service.
The Taipei-Chicago route is the latest addition to the airline’s expanding network in North America, which already includes Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Toronto, New York and Houston, which was launched in summer 2015.
The new service not only secures EVA Air’s position as the leading airline in terms of flight frequency and capacity between North American and Taiwan but also facilitates more one-stop connections to more destinations throughout Asia and Mainland China than any other carrier.
As part of the airline’s expansion plans, last November it signed agreements to purchase up to 24 Boeing 787 Dreamliners and two additional Boeing 777-300ERs over the next six years, gradually replacing older models, introducing more flight frequencies and adding new destinations to its schedule.
