Beginning July 7th, EVA Airways will begin daytime flights between New York and Taiwan. With these new daytime flights, EVA Air continues to expand its North American route network. EVA Air’s new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft provides a total of 333 passenger seats for travelers between New York and Taipei, who now will enjoy greater convenience when traveling to Taiwan. Out-of -New York state passengers will now be able to enjoy greater mobility, making it particularly easy to add Southeast Asian routes for passengers aboard to transfer at Taipei on to connecting flights. Out-of-state passengers have already praised the convenience of this transfer to connecting flights. The inaugural flight had a 90% passenger capacity!
EVA Air NYC General Manager Michael Chang, JFK Manager Chunqiang Gan, NYC Sales Manager Daryl Yu, and JFK Station Manager Steve Sak were on hand at Kennedy Airport to greet the passengers arriving on the inaugural flight from Taipei. The flight from Taipei to New York departs at 7:50 am, (GMT) and arrives the next morning at 10:45 in New York.
As the airline continues to grow its services in this important market, it is adding three weekly daytime flights to existing daily New York service on July 7, and further expanding operations to two trips a day on October 3.
With its 12:45 afternoon flight, EVA Air will now provide passengers greater convenience, and give them more choices. In the event a passenger misses their flight, there is no longer a 24 hour wait for the next out-going flight to Taipei.
To tie in with the new early flight, EVA Air has implemented a corresponding increase in connecting flights from Taiwan to Manila, Ho Chi Minh, and Bangkok.
