The China Post - - LOCAL -

EVA Air­ways, one of Tai­wan’s lead­ing in­ter­na­tional car­ri­ers, said Thurs­day it will add more flights to its Tai­wan-Sin­ga­pore route start­ing June 21 to ex­pand its tran­sit ser­vices to Southeast Asian coun­tries.

The num­ber of those trans­fer­ring be­tween Southeast Asia and North Amer­ica via Tai­wan has grown by 40 per­cent com­pared with the same pe­riod last year, the air­line said.

EVA said it hopes the ser­vice ex­pan­sion can el­e­vate its mar­ket pres­ence in the area, adding that it will use a Boe­ing 777-300ER air­craft dec­o­rated with the popular Ja­panese car­toon char­ac­ter Hello Kitty to boost rid­er­ship.

In ad­di­tion to ex­ist­ing daily round-trip ser­vices, the air­line will op­er­ate an ex­tra round-trip flight on Wed­nes­days, Fri­days, and Sun­days, bring­ing the to­tal num­ber of round-trip ser­vices to 10 per week.

Be­gin­ning July 1, one more round- trip ser­vice will be launched on Tues­days, ac­cord­ing to the car­rier.
