Clear Blue Skies

Evergreen Group Chairman and Founder Dr. Chang Yung-Fa created EVA Air in 1989. The first flights to Asia were made in the same year—on July 1, connecting to more than 60 major cities. In collaboration with UNI Air and other airline carriers, EVA Air makes connections with China, particularly Taiwan. This is made possible through EVA Air’s recognition as a Star Alliance member in June 2013.
Because Taiwan is the main hub for EVA flights, it’s worth highlighting some of the city’s must-see attractions, including the Chiufen Village, Pitou Cave, Yingge and Sansia to discover ceramic art and pottery, Elephant Mountain, National Palace Museum, Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Park, Taipei 101, and Shilin Night Market.
EVA Air makes stops across Mainland China, Japan, Macau, and North America, including Toronto and Vancouver (with approximately five flights to and from Taiwan daily). Choose among one of the following classes when you book a flight: Royal Laurel, Business, Economy, Premium Laurel, Elite.
Because EVA Air has a great reputation for flight safety and reliability, it comes as no surprise that this airline has received many awards. Aero International has ranked EVA Air as one of the world’s top 10 safest airlines since 2004. The American Travel + Leisure magazine voted EVA as one of the best airlines in 2010 and 2012. In 2012, airline travellers unquestionably gave EVA a passing grade for best airline staff service throughout Asia.
Consider EVA Air whenever you plan a trip across the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean. Have a safe trip!
