EVA Air will add more capacity on its North American routes this summer.

From June 2014, the Taiwanese carrier will increase its total number of flights to North America from 45 to 55 per week, with extra services to all five of EVA’s destinations on the continent: Vancouver, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The routes to the two Canadian cities of Vancouver and Toronto will both increase from three to four flights per week, while services to New York’s JFK Airport will rise from five per week to daily. The LA route will initially rise from 17 to 20 flights per week, before hitting three flights per day on 3 July 2014 – the same day EVA raises the frequency of its San Francisco route from 12 to 14 flights per week.

This expansion will be enabled by the addition of three more Boeing 777-300ERs to EVA’s fleet in the second quarter of 2014. These aircraft will offer approximately 315 seats.

“Since joining Star Alliance in June 2013, EVA has experienced growing demand for its services among business travellers. There has been a substantial increase in the numbers of business passengers flying the airline from North America to Southeast Asia via its hub in Taipei,” EVA said in a statement. “The average load on EVA’s North America flights surpassed 80% in 2013 and company officials expect bookings to keep climbing in 2014,” it added.

EVA serves all five North American destinations direct from Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport.
