EVA Air is continuing to strengthen its US prescene, with a planned increase of services between Taipei and New York.

EVA Air will strengthen the Taipei Taoyan to New York JFK service from 7 flights a week to 10 flights a week from 7th July 2016.
The existing flights (BR031/BR032) will remain, with new flights (BR029/BR030) operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between the two cities.
The combined timetable looks like this:
Taipei Taoyan to New York JFK BR030 DEPART TPE 07:50 ARRIVE JFK 10:45 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays BR032 DEPART TPE 19:10 ARRIVE JFK 22:05 Daily New York JFK to Taipei Taoyan BR031 DEPART JFK 01:25 ARRIVE TPE 04:55+1 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays BR029 DEPART JFK 12:45 ARRIVE TPE 16:15+1 Daily BR032/31 operate continuously, Daily service BR030/29 commence 7th July 2016, operating Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays only. Booked Equipment on both flights Boeing 777-300ER Data: Airlineroute
The timings of the new flight are rather reasonable – getting you into New York at a reasonable time of day whilst connecting back you will be able to connect into the evening bank of flights from Taipei.
And a lot better than the vampire timings of BR032/BR031 (with it’s 01:25 departure in the morning!)
Reservations are open on this flight, which means for those of you redeeming Star Alliance miles there should be some extra seats to reserve for award flights.
Hopefully EVA Air can fill the seats on these extra services and consider boosting it to two times daily between Taipei and New York.
Additionally, it seems the flights to Houston are working with plans to take this to a daily service. Currently, this operates as a four-times a week service.
The service will be increased in two stages:
- Stage 1: From 4 services a week to 6 services a week from 27th March 2016
- Stage 2: Daily service from 27th October 2016
With a daily service, there will be seats to be booked and a lot more capacity between Taipei and Houston.
