Taiwan’s EVA Air has continued to expand its presence in the US with the launch of flights to Chicago, its sixth destination in the country.

The new service took off for the first time on Wednesday (2 November 2016) and will initially operate four times a week.

The outbound flights will depart Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 2005 and arrive at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport at 2055 the same day. The return services then leave the ‘Windy City’ every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday at 0020 and land back in Taiwan at 0500 the following day.

EVA will serve the trans-Pacific route using its 333-seat Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which offers business, premium economy and economy class seating, plus in-flight Wi-Fi.

“We have steadily developed, expanded and upgraded our global network and Chicago is an important link,” said EVA’s president, Derek Chen. “By introducing our new Chicago route and increasing service from other North America cities, EVA will be offering 80 flights a week to Asia by the end of this year.

“Our trans-Pacific flight frequency will outnumber that of every other airline in the North America market. From these flights, our passengers can take one-stop connections from Taipei on to 12 major cities in Southeast Asia,” he added.

Chicago becomes EVA’s sixth destination in the US and its eighth in North America, following Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver.
