EVA Air receives its first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner
June 24, 2019: Boeing has delivered Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner jet to Eva Air, Taiwanese airline.
This is the first of 20 super-efficient 787-10s the carrier plans to use on high-density routes within Asia later this summer. EVA Air's 787-10 can serve 342 passengers in a two-class configuration, which is 38 more seats than EVA Air's 787-9 Dreamliner.
The jet is the largest member of the fuel-efficient and passenger-pleasing Dreamliner family.
The airline, which is also celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, already operates a fleet of four 787-9 Dreamliners.
"The 787 Dreamliner has become the flagship of our fleet and we will leverage the airplane's unrivaled fuel efficiency, reliability and size to operate high-density markets in Asia," said Steve Lin, chairman of EVA Air.
"The 787-10 offers around 15 percent more cabin space and cargo capacity compared to our existing 787-9s and this added capability will allow us to explore new opportunities for future growth in the emerging markets within Asia Pacific."
"With their 777-300ERs, 787-9s and now the 787-10, EVA Air will have an incredible widebody family to serve its passengers and grow its international network for many years to come," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing of The Boeing Company.
Powered by a suite of new technologies and a revolutionary design, the 787-10 set a new benchmark for fuel efficiency and operating economics when it entered commercial service last year.
The airplane allows operators to achieve 25 percent better fuel efficiency per seat compared to the previous airplanes in its class. Onboard the airline's new 787 Dreamliner, passengers can experience EVA Air's new Royal Laurel class seats designed by Designworks, a BMW Group company.
EVA Air serves international routes with approximately 565 weekly flights.
