EVA Airways and the Boeing Company has recently announced that they have finalized the largest ever commercial airplane purchase in Taiwanese aviation. This historic deal is for an order for up to 24 787-10 Dreamliners as well as two 777-300ER (Extended Ranged) jetliners, totaling at more than $8 billion at current list prices.
"EVA participated in development of the Boeing 777-300ER and became a launch customer in 2005. From that first delivery through today, we operate 22 of these high-performance long-haul aircraft."
said Austin Cheng, the president of EVA Airways.
“We believe the future of the airline industry will be built on fuel efficiency and cabin comfort. The new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner's high fuel efficiency and long-range flying capabilities meets these requirements and our operational needs. These planes will support our growth well into the future."
EVA Airways, which is now the newest Dreamliner customer, will accompany the 787-10 launch customer team as one of the initial airlines in the world to introduce the most recent member of the 787 Dreamliner family.
"We are honored to welcome EVA Airways as Boeing's newest member of the 787-10 Dreamliner launch customer group. For many years, EVA Air has been pushing the boundaries of aviation,”
said Ray Conner, the CEO and President of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
“Ten years ago, EVA was a launch customer for the 777-300ER. With today's order, Boeing is proud to continue playing an integral role in revolutionizing Taiwan's aviation history as EVA becomes one of the first customers around the world to operate the 787-10."
EVA Airways plans on growing its fleet to more than 100 aircraft by 2020 as the company continues to update its long-haul fleet by replacing aging aircrafts. EVA Airways will be enabled to venture into new markets with this recent acquisition of 787-10 Dreamliners.
