New Route of the Day (25 October 2022): EVA Air between Taipei and Milan MXP
Taiwan’s EVA Air (IATA code BR) launched its first new route to Europe for several years when it began non-stop service between Taipei and Milan MXP on Tuesday 25 October. The 9,640-kilometre route will be served 2-weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays and faces no direct competition. The airline will operate its 777-300ERs on the route. A second new route to Europe, this time to Munich in southern Germany, is set to launch on 3 November.
EVA Air now serves six airports in Europe
These two new routes to Milan and Munich join EVA Air’s existing non-stop services to Paris CDG (daily) and Vienna (3-weekly) in Europe. In addition, the carrier serves Amsterdam (3-weekly) and London LHR (daily), but these services operate via Bangkok in Thailand in both directions.
Latest Asian route for Malpensa
For Milan MXP, Taipei becomes the latest Asian destination to be served non-stop from the airport. This winter, according to Cirium data, the airport will also have weekly flights to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific, 3-weekly service to Seoul with Korean Air and daily service with Singapore Airlines to, you guessed it, Singapore.
