Since joining Star Alliance in June 2013, EVA has experienced growing demand for its services among business travelers. There has been a substantial increase in the numbers of business passengers flying the airline from North America to Southeast Asia via its hub in Taipei, Taiwan. Bookings for EVA’s Royal Laurel Class business cabin have also climbed. EVA launched the luxurious service on the New York – Taipei route in June 2012.

The average load on EVA’s North America flights surpassed 80 percent in 2013 and company officials expect bookings to keep climbing in 2014. It will accommodate this growth and the added frequency by taking delivery of three Boeing 777-300ERs in the second quarter of 2014 and deploying the new aircraft on long-haul flights between North America and Taiwan. EVA is adding the service in two phases. It will increase:

Phase 1

  • · Vancouver from three to four flights per week on 2 June, 2014.
  • · Los Angeles from 17 to 20 flights per week, New York from five to daily flights and Toronto from three to four flights per week on 4 June, 2014.

Phase 2

  • · San Francisco from 12 to 14 flights per week and Los Angeles from 20 to 21 flights per week on 3 July, 2014.

North America is a major market for EVA. In addition to Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver, it operates five flights a week to Seattle. The airline has seen stable market-share growth in all six cities it serves, lifted by not only Chinese and Asian passengers but also American business travelers. EVA officials expect the added frequencies to attract even more business travelers and further elevate its North America market share.

The newest member of Star Alliance, EVA links an international network of major destinations worldwide, including dozens of cities in China and throughout Asia. EVA offers more trans-Pacific flights from North America to Taipei where, with just one easy stop, it provides onward connections to more major business and leisure centers than any other airline. Business and leisure travelers can access the expanded schedules and book the added flights now through travel agents and EVA’s website at www.evaair.com.
