EVA to add Asia-North America air cargo routes
November 15, 2017: Embarking on a new phase of freight expansion, Taiwan's EVA Air is all set to put its new Boeing 777 freighter in service on routes between Asia and North America by the month end.
EVA Air took delivery of its first Boeing 777 freighter recently and flew it from Paine Field to Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE).
EVA plans to put its new Boeing 777 freighter in service on routes between Asia and North America in late November. Its freighter destinations in Asia include Shanghai Pudong, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Osaka, Singapore, Bangkok, Penang and Hanoi.
On the other hand, its air cargo gateways in North America are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and Atlanta.
EVA currently offers airfreight services across 62 routes, including five dedicated cargo gateways, with 35 weekly freighter flights.
Boeing 777 freighter is the world’s largest twin-engine air cargo carrier. It was designed to replace the 747-400 and MD11 freighters. Based on the Boeing 777-200LR, the 777 freighter has the range to fly 5,000 nautical miles fully loaded with a maximum capacity of 103 tons.
