EVA Air Takes Delivery of Its First Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner


EVA Air is celebrating the delivery of its first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, marking the first of 20 super-efficient 787-10s the carrier plans to use on high-density routes within Asia later this summer. The airline, which is also celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, already operates a fleet of four 787-9 Dreamliners.

"The 787 Dreamliner has become the flagship of our fleet and we will leverage the aeroplane's unrivalled fuel efficiency, reliability and size to operate high-density markets in Asia," said Steve Lin, Chairman of EVA Air. "The 787-10 offers around 15 % more cabin space and cargo capacity compared to our existing 787-9s and this added capability will allow us to explore new opportunities for future growth in the emerging markets within Asia Pacific. As a five-star airline, we are committed to providing world-class service and products to our customers and these new aeroplanes will be key to our long-term success."


Built with lightweight composite materials and powered by advanced GEnx engines, EVA Air's 787-10 is the largest member of the fuel-efficient and passenger-pleasing Dreamliner family. At 224 feet long (68 meters), EVA Air's 787-10 can serve 342 passengers in a two-class configuration, which is 38 more seats than EVA Air's 787-9 Dreamliner.

"EVA Air is an award-winning carrier and has formed a dynamic long-haul fleet. With their 777-300ERs, 787-9s and now the 787-10, EVA Air will have an incredible widebody family to serve its passengers and grow its international network for many years to come," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing of The Boeing Company. "We are extremely honoured that EVA is building their future around the 787 Dreamliner family and I am confident that the passenger-pleasing capabilities of the aeroplane will contribute immensely to the airline's reputation as a five star airline."

A member of Star Alliance, EVA Air serves international routes with approximately 565 weekly flights. Onboard the airline's new 787 Dreamliner, passengers can experience EVA Air's new Royal Laurel class seats designed by Designworks, a BMW Group company. At 23 inches wide, the new seats feature privacy panels, full lie-flat capabilities as well as enhanced in-flight entertainment systems. EVA Air also partnered with Teague, to redesign its economy class seats, which are produced by Recaro.
