Taipei-based EVA Air has finalised an order with Boeing for three B777-300ERs aircraft, with purchase rights for an additional four aircraft. “The 777-300ER is the flagship of our long-haul fleet and will play an important role in growing our global operations,” said Chang Kuo-wei, president of EVA Air. “The highly efficient, technologically advanced airplane will enhance the premium flying experience for passengers and will also allow us to open new destinations around the world.” The Taiwan-based carrier – which was the launch customer for the B777-300ER in 2000 – is in the midst of growing its fleet to increase frequency to mainland China and new destinations in North Asia. In addition to the Boeing order for three B777-300ERs, EVA Air will also lease four B777-300ERs from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), adding a total of seven new 777-300ER airplanes to its long-haul twin-aisle fleet. EVA Air currently operates 15 B777-300ERs.
