Headquartered in Luzhu, Taoyuan City, Taiwan, EVA Air is a large, privately-owned Taiwanese international airline based at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. EVA Air is the 6th safest airline in the world, operating passenger and dedicated cargo services to over 60 international destinations. EVA flites to every region of Mainland China and extend passenger and cargo services worldwide by code-sharing flights with other leading airlines.
Since 1991, EVA Air has kept quality service and continuous improvement as part of daily operations from the start. Building on its commitment to quality service and safety for more than 25 years, EVA is now rated as a 5-Star Airline by international quality ratings organization SKYTRAX. Today, they serve a global network that connects Asia and Mainland China to Europe, North America and Oceania and links more than 60 major business and tourist destinations. EVA is also a Star Alliance member. Through Star Alliance, they give passengers access to a vast network of 1330 destinations in more 192 countries and seamless global services, and offer geographic advantages within Asia from their centrally located hub in Taiwan as an added benefit.
EVA Air operates a fleet of more than 70 Boeing, McDonnell Douglas and Airbus aircraft that is among the youngest in the industry. EVA Air operates a mixed fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, with Airbus A330, Airbus A321, and Boeing 777 airliners primarily used on passenger routes, along with Boeing 747-400 and Boeing 777 freighter aircraft used on cargo routes. EVA has dozens more new aircraft scheduled for delivery, including as many as 24 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, expected to begin taking delivery in 2018.
As of the first carriers to introduce, EVA Air launched one of the world’s first premium economy cabins in December 1992, which has become an airline-industry trendsetter that is consistently popular among both business and leisure travelers. EVA created their Royal Laurel Class business cabin when they began to add Boeing 777-300ERs to our fleet and upgraded it with 5-star luxuries and comfy extras, which is offered on all long-haul routes. Royal Laurel passengers enjoy personalized extras such as turn-down and sommelier-style wine services in cozy flat-bed seats that all have direct aisle access. Touch-screen entertainment systems have connections for electronic devices, charging outlets and, on our Boeing 777-300ERs, Wi-Fi and global roaming.
EVA makes flying fun with Hello Kitty Jets. Flights on their Hello Kitty Jets are so popular that they operate seven second-generation editions of the specially painted planes on routes within Asia, to Paris and to Houston. Their Hello Kitty Jet passengers enjoy a cheerful environment on an aircraft with a charming, brightly painted livery and more than 100 inflight service items. We won a special Global Traveler Magazine Leisure Lifestyle Award for “Outstanding Customized Service” and the UK Daily Mail’s “World's Best Plane Liveries” in 2016.
