Eva Air Welcomes First Star Alliance Liveried Boeing 787-10

EVA Air, Taiwan’s leading independent airline, took delivery of its eighth Boeing 787-10, aircraft number B-17812, at the Boeing factory in North Charleston, South Carolina on May 5, 2023.

The new aircraft is EVA Air’s first Boeing 787-10 with a Star Alliance livery and it made its ferry flight with Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), further reducing carbon emissions.

The aircraft departed Charleston Airport and after flying for approximately 17 hours, landed at Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) at 2:00 p.m. (UTC+8) on May 7, 2023.

“EVA Air is proud to have been a Star Alliance member since June 2013,” said EVA President Clay Sun.

“We are celebrating our 10th Star Alliance Membership anniversary with a series of special events and programmes.

“We have always been dedicated to customer service. Part of this dedication includes integration of ESG criteria into our operations.

“This new 787-10 delivery gave us the opportunity to both celebrate our 10th year of membership with Star Alliance livery and use Sustainable Aviation Fuel on our ferry flight.

“These actions symbolise the close connection between EVA Air and Star Alliance and demonstrate EVA’s commitment to reaching Net Zero by 2050.”

Since joining Star Alliance, EVA Air has continued its ongoing efforts to upgrade and improve hardware and software, meeting many of its passenger needs through joint procurement, joint system development and resource sharing.
