Added New York departures arrive in Taipei in late afternoon

EVA Air is giving passengers more flexibility and convenience by doubling its New York frequency and introducing midday departures.

Starting July 7, 2016, the airline began by adding three weekly midday departures, boosting frequency to 10 flights a week and, by Oct. 3, 2016, it will offer two New York-Taipei flights a day.

The new midday flights get passengers into Taipei in time for dinner or an easy nighttime connection to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Manila or Saigon, while return flights land in New York midmorning, early enough for passengers to enjoy lunch and have a productive afternoon at the office or travel onward to destinations throughout the United States or Canada.

Travelers can learn more about the new schedule and book flights through travel agents, EVA ticket offices or online at www.evaair.com.

EVA flight BR29 departs John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) at 12:45 p.m. and arrives in Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) at 4:15 p.m. the following day.

Return flight BR30 leaves Taipei at 7:50 a.m. and arrives in New York at 10:45 a.m. the same day.

In addition to upping New York service to two flights a day, EVA has adjusted its Los Angeles schedule and introduced midday service.

At the same time, the airline is increasing frequencies on routes within Southeast Asia, boosting the number of easy onward connections from North America via Taipei to 124 a week by year-end.

Among several current Southeast Asia routes to see increased frequency, it is adding more flights to Manila and Saigon.

The added flights, adjusted New York and Los Angeles schedules and launch of a Chicago-Taipei route on Nov. 3 will equip EVA to offer travelers from throughout North America greater convenience, more choices and easier access to not only popular tourism destinations but also markets, financial centers and manufacturing hubs throughout Asia.

EVA also serves Houston, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver in North America.
