EVA to fly nonstop, New York to Asia and add service

EVA Air will initiate nonstop service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Taiwan and increase its weekly flights from four to five per week, starting June 19, 2012. This summer, JFK departures will be scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday and flights will no longer need to stop in Anchorage to refuel. One-stop connections through Taipei’s world-class Taoyuan International Airport to 24 cities in China and almost every major business and leisure center in Northeast and Southeast Asia will make travel on EVA’s competitively priced flights even easier and more convenient.

EVA flies comfortable new Boeing 777-300ERs on flights between New York and Taipei and, with its schedule change, will be making the trip in 14 hours and 50 minutes, shaving approximately three hours and 25 minutes off of the current flight time. Early morning arrivals and frequent, convenient connecting flights enable East Coast passengers to get to morning meetings in Taiwan or connect onward for luncheon appointments in Shanghai and most other major cities in Asia.  Flight time for the return trip from Taipei is 15 hours and 55 minutes and is nonstop now.  With EVA’s warm, friendly service, award-winning wines and cozy aircraft, East Coast passengers will find travel to Taiwan and the many destinations the airline serves all over Asia to be more comfortable than ever.  

Along with New York, EVA serves Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver in North America. And it makes more flights to Taiwan with more easy, one-stop connections onward to more destinations in China and throughout Asia than any other airline.
