EVA Air will initiate non-stop flights between Taipei and Houston from 19 June 2015 on the unforgettable Hello Kitty jets. The airline will start the new service with three flights a week and increase frequency to four from 1 July 2015. The new route will offer passengers from Singapore a comfortable transfer to Taipei and further on to Houston, Texas on the ever-popular Hello Kitty jets.
As a Star Alliance member, EVA Air teamed up with Singapore Airlines to introduce codeshare flights between Singapore and Taipei in 2013, and the partnership was further enhanced with Singapore Airlines codesharing EVA Air’s 55 weekly flights between Taipei and North America. Travellers from Singapore can take advantage of the short transit time in Taipei enroute to EVA Air’s North American destinations including Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, Toronto, Vancouver and now Houston. Moreover, EVA Air will continue to expand trans-pacific service in 2015 with additional scheduled flights from Taipei to Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver.
EVA Air’s flights between Singapore’s Changi Airport and Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airports are scheduled as follows:
EVA Air will provide the service with its latest Boeing 777-300ER, which will be delivered in May 2015 and brightly painted nose-to-tail with Texas–sized Hello Kitty and Sanrio characters. The 333-seat aircraft will be configured with 39 seats in Royal Laurel Class business, 56 in Elite premium economy and 238 in Economy. It will be equipped with Wi-Fi, the latest inflight entertainment system and SMS roaming service that passengers can use to send and receive short messages on their own mobile phones.
With a short transit time in Taipei of 2 hours, passengers can now look forward to convenient travel between Singapore and Houston.
