Taiwanese airline company EVA Air has started operating four flights per week from Taipei to Munich in Germany for the first time. The airline company will use the Boeing 787-9 aircraft that will take off from Munich on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday for Taiwan.
Jost Lammers, chief executive officer of Munich Airport, said that they welcome EVA Air as a new star in the Munich sky, and EVA Air mainly complements their diverse offerings, especially with its transfer connections. Jost Lammers continued by saying that the launch of the new operations between Munich and Taipei expands their intercontinental network, and is also a positive sign for the continued recovery of traffic at Munich Airport.
The new partnership between this premium airline and their five-star airport is a perfect match and will provide Bavarian companies and tourists alike with a direct connection to the Asian cultural and business centre, said Munich Airport CCO Jan-Henrick Anderson.
Munich Airport handled 12.5 million passengers in 2021, an increase of over 12 percent from 2020 figures. The Taiwanese carrier serves around 68 destinations across four continents, with its 90 aircraft, of which around two-thirds fleet are long-haul jets.
