EVA New 787


EVA New 787

Smile in the sky

History was recently made when EVA Air took their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner from Taipei to Hong Kong for its maiden flight. Hundreds of travelers, including media from around the world, celebrated the carrier’s new plane with a special launch event at Taoyuan International Airport. Passengers were invited to take selfies and keepsake photos in front of a Dreamliner-themed banner and encouraged to shared smiling portraits with family and on social media friends before boarding. EVA created a special departure lounge banner, built around its new commercial film, “The Smile in the Sky,” and gave passengers Dreamliner-themed fan signs to include in photos with travel companions and memorialize travel on the aircraft’s maiden flight.



A new Level of Luxury

“Our addition of Boeing 787 Dreamliners equips EVA to expand our service capacity and gives us more flexibility in fleet deployment.” said EVA President Clay Sun.The airline is the first to operate the 787 in Taiwan and is set to have the General Electric powered aircraft on other international routes soon. The airline has ordered 23 787s consisting of three 787-9s and 20 787-10s to afford the long haul traveler with more choices on flying this flagship of the skies.

EVA’s 787 is fitted with 304 seats in a two class configuration divided into 26 Royal Laurel Class business and 278 in economy. Economy class features headrests that can adjust to six inches in six different directions. Entertainment screens are 12-inch HD touch screen with USB charging capabilities. The Royal Laurel class that is photograph on this page was designed and built with BMW Designworks and enlivened the definition of ‘front of cabin’ with innovation and precision.



Designworks had produced a new business class seat when EVA asked the respected and dedicated global aviation team to use their first-hand experience of global cultures to provide solutions that complement EVA’s own identity whilst strengthening their premium, unique and global positioning.

Whilst strategically maintaining ties to traditional elements of the brand, the target was to step away from a ‘conventional’ seat design built off heritage, and move towards a more unique and mature design, and Designworks created bold and differentiated experiences for its passengers. The new EVA business class seat features 18-inch HD multi-touch screens for entertainment, extra-large foldout tables, privacy blinds and built in storage cabinets. This allows passengers traveling in business class to enjoy a comfortable and cozy work and rest space. The actual seats are 23 inches wide and can recline into a 76 inch into a flat bed flatbed.






EVA is a Star Alliance member and one of only 11 SKYTRAX-rated 5-Star Airlines worldwide, was established in 1989 as Taiwan’s first privately owned international airline. It is part of the respected Evergreen Group and a sister company to global container-shipping leader Evergreen Line. It flies a fleet of more than 70 Boeing and Airbus aircraft to more than 60 cities throughout Asia, Oceania, Europe and North America where gateways are Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver. With just one easy stop in Taipei, travelers can connect onward to every major city in Asia, including 17 destinations in China. EVA.
