The airline of Hello Kitty is to add a new US Destination, with the city of Houston to gain a service between Taipei Taoyuan and Houston Intercontinental from June 2015.
The flight will operate 3 a week initially, before going four times a week from 7th July.
The initial timetable looks like this:
BR052 DEPART TPE 16:20 ARRIVE IAH 17:45 BR051 DEPART IAH 01:55 ARRIVE TPE 23:25+1 BR052 Operates Wednesday, Friday and Sunday between 19th June 2015 to 7th July 2015 BR051 Operates Monday, Thursday and Saturday, 20th June and 8th July 2015 BR052 Operates Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 8th July 2015 BR051 Operates Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9th July 2015 Commences 19th June BR052 operates earlier on 19th June 2015 Booked Equipment: Boeing 777-300ER (333 seater) Data: EVA Air
This will be EVA Air’s fifth destination in the United States of America using their Boeing 777-300ER equipment. For EVA Air, it’s another step in the USA – and an interesting port at that.
There’s going to be more than enough Star Alliance traffic from United Airlines supplying US domestic flights, and not much competition – with international partners ANA, United, Singapore Airlines (via Moscow) and Air China. Korean Air also has a service to Asia too.
A strong service, with enough of commitment to increase the service further if the demand needs it. It’ll be interesting to see if this service works.
