First Dreamliner for Eva

With fellow major Taiwan-based carrier China Airlines revealing its new Airbus A350-900 this week (see this issue), Eva Air has also been showcasing its latest aircraft and first Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner.

The company has ordered four B787-9s and 20 B787-10s. All the aircraft are expected to be delivered by 2022, with the first to be deployed on the Taipei – Hong Kong route next month.

Chairman Steve Lin said: “We will be using the B787-9 to refresh our fleet, with the addition of this technologically-advanced aircraft demonstrating Eva’s capacity to sustain steady growth and continue to upgrade our service quality.”

The second Dreamliner is expected to be delivered by next month, with Eva planning to expand its services to Tokyo and Osaka. The remaining two B787-9s are expected for delivery in 2019 and will be used on flights to Australia and Europe. The first B787-10 is scheduled to be delivered in the second quarter of next year.

The B787-9 has a maximum range of 7,100nmi and can fly non-stop from Taiwan to Vancouver, Seattle, Vienna and Brisbane. It is configured for 304 passengers in two cabins, with 26 seats in Royal Laurel class and 278 in Economy.
