The move sees the airline become the latest global carrier to select the A350-1000 for its future long-haul requirements and in addition, the A321neo aircraft will bring new levels of efficiency for the carrier’s regional network.
“We have selected the Airbus aircraft following a thorough evaluation of the various models in each market segment,” said Eva Air President, Clay Sun.
“In both size categories we have selected the most modern and fuel-efficient types, that offer the highest levels of passenger comfort.
“The aircraft also bring significant reductions in carbon emissions, which is in line with our company’s sustainability goals.
“For long-range operations the A350-1000 sets new standards in its class and will allow us to offer our passengers the best possible in-flight experience.”
The A350 is available in two sizes, with the A350-900 typically seating up to 350 passengers in a standard three-class configuration and the larger A350-1000 seating up to 410 passengers.
