Eva Air wants more Boeing 777s

Eva Air of Taiwan has announced to acquire seven additional Boeing 777-300ERs. The aircraft will be delivered in 2014 and 2016. The airline expects increasing business after becoming a member of the Star Alliance. Another reason is the visa waiver from the USA and an expected growth of transit traffic from mainland China. The carrier is also making plans to replace its four Boeing 747-400 Combis by 2015. The Eva fleet consists of 59 aircraft at the moment, mostly widebodies: 14 Airbus A330s, 15 Boeing 777-300ERs, seven 747-400s, nine 747 freighters and eight MD-11 freighters. The only narrowbodies in Eva service are six MD-90's.
