EVA will add to SingaporeTaiwan flight route in June
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.
