Taiwan-based Star Alliance member EVA Air will increase the number of flights between its Taipei hub and Seattle this winter.

From 31 October, EVA Air will fly to Seattle 10-times a week, up from daily flights currently offered.

The additional flights will depart Taipei each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as BR24 at 2300. They arrive on the same day in Seattle, at 1730 local time.

The three additional flights will be operated by EVA Air’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, while the original daily schedule remains unchanged on the Boeing 787-10.

As the 787-10 only offers business and economy class, EVA Air seemingly has decided to not sell the premium economy cabin available on the 777-300ER aircraft as these seats are currently open for reservation for economy class passengers on the newly mounted 777-300ER Seattle schedule.

Earlier this year, EVA Air ordered five more Boeing 787-9s, with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2025.

Starting in mid-2024, EVA Air will update and reconfigure its 787-9s to add premium economy class, although for now it looks as if the 787-10s will not get a premium economy section.

Following this latest 787 order, EVA Air’s 787 fleet will grow to 26 aircraft – 13 787-9s and 13 higher-capacity 787-10s.

Elsewhere in the US, EVA Air also flies to New York’s Kennedy, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In Canada, the Star Alliance carrier serves Toronto and Vancouver.
