In September 1988, during the 20th anniversary celebration of Evergreen Marine Corporation’s founding, company chairman Chang Yung-fa announced his company’s intentions to establish Taiwan’s first private international airline. The opportunity to create a major Taiwanese airline had just arisen following a decision by the Taiwanese government to liberalize the country’s air transportation system.[2] However, the Taiwanese government required international experience and substantial financial backing for any company seeking permission for international airline service from Taiwan.[4] With the Evergreen Airlines designation already taken, EVA Airways Corporation was formally established in March 1989. The new airline placed a US$3.6 billion order for 26 aircraft from Boeing and McDonnell Douglas, including Boeing 747-400 and MD-11 airliners.[5] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Established as the airline for Taiwanese people, EVA Air differentiated its onboard service by using the order of "Taiwanese (Min Nan)–MandarinHakkaEnglish/foreign languages" for its cabin announcements on every flight. This was aimed at attracting elderly Taiwanese passengers who have difficulty speaking Mandarin. However, EVA Air has already switched the order of Min Nan and Mandarin. EVA Air also used Taiwanese folk songs in its boarding music, most notably an orchestral form of "Longing for Spring Wind," adding a sentimental touch to passengers' journeys. (This practice continues today as part of a wider repertoire of songs performed by the Evergreen Symphonic Orchestra during boarding and disembarkation.)

By 1994, EVA was providing regular service to 22 destinations worldwide, and carrying over 3 million passengers annually.[6] In 1995, EVA posted its first profit on revenues of $1.05 billion.[6] Internationally, EVA Air's rapid expansion and success was boosted by its strong safety record, in contrast to its primary competitor, China Airlines.[2] In addition to being the first Taiwanese airline to receive IOSA (IATA Operations Safety Audit) certification, EVA Air in 1997 became the only Taiwanese airline to achieve simultaneous official ISO 9002 certification in the areas of Passenger, Cargo, and Maintenance Services.[3] Not to be confused with Air China, the national airline of Peoples Republic of China. ...

The interiors of the planes also adopted the Hello Kitty theme, on inflight products such as meals, boarding cards, on board amenities and inflight sales. Both planes were used to serve Japanese destinations.

EVA Air has ordered 15 Boeing 777-300ER, with 7 already delivered. The airline decided against its existing three Boeing 777-200LR orders (stating that with the 777-300ERs it has sufficient passenger capacity), and the 777-200LR orders were dropped in favor of two proposed 777 Freighter orders.[8] According to a February issue of Airliner World, EVA Air later also decided to delay any orders for the Boeing 777 Freighter because of lowered market growth due to increased fuel costs.

New Cabin

EVA Air is transitioning to three classes of service: Premium Laurel Class (Business), Elite Class (Premium Economy), and Economy Class. Elite Class is also known by its previous name, Evergreen Deluxe, on older aircraft. Pre-refit Boeing 747-400 aircraft feature Super First and Super Business, which will be discontinued by 2008. Domestic and short-haul international services flown by EVA Air and Uni Air MD-90 aircraft also feature a short-haul business class. The Boeing 747-400 is the latest version of the Boeing 747 in service. ...


With the arrival of the sixth Boeing 777-300ER into their fleet, EVA Air has introduced mood lighting into their Premium Laurel and Elite Class Cabins (with no plans to introduce this system on their previously delivered 777s at present). This system has been designed to replicate the natural light cycle outside of the plane. It also features a twinkling star system (similar to that on Emirates) which represents numerous constellations.


The first retro-fit Boeing 747-400 (reg. B-16411) came into service on June 16, 2007. The Super First Class cabin has been removed and the new Premium Laurel, Elite Class and Economy Class cabins have been installed.

EVA's new Business Class cabin, Premium Laurel Class, was introduced in 2003 with the A330-200, and expanded to more destinations with the debut of the flagship B777-300ER in 2005. Seats are pitched at 61" in Premium Laurel and are fully reclinable, converting to an angled lie-flat bed. Premium Laurel features a 2-2-2 abreast arrangement on all available aircraft (as opposed to the typical 2-3-2 arrangement in business class on other airlines' 777s and 747s). All seats are equipped with 10.4" LCD screens featuring Star Gallery, EVA Air's AVOD (Audio Video on Demand) entertainment system, and Premium Laurel passengers are offered noise canceling headphones. On long haul 777 flights, a separate bar area features a salad buffet and snacks.

Elite Class

Available on the B777-300ER and B747-400, Elite Class (777, 747) / Evergreen Deluxe Class (pre-refit 747) is EVA Air's premium economy product. These seats are in a dedicated cabin, with wider seating and legroom, and a seat similar to short haul business class with an extendable legrest. Seats are in a 2-4-2 arrangement on both the 777 and 747. On EVA's B777-300ER, Elite Class seats also feature an adjustable winged headrest, power outlets for laptops, 8.4" LCD screens with Star Gallery, EVA's AVOD (audio video on demand) entertainment system, and noise cancelling headphones. On the 747, the older Evergreen Deluxe seat features increased legroom and an adjustable legrest like the Elite Class seat, and includes a rotating six channel entertainment video selection without laptop power. Service levels in EVA's premium economy cabins are similar to Economy, but food and amenities are improved, along with the seating. In the summer of 2007, EVA Air had already introduced the new Elite cabin to its B747-400 aircraft, replacing Evergreen Deluxe Class. Premium Economy is a travel class offered on some airlines as a form of upgrade to the Economy class, typically by offering better seats at 36-38 seat pitch (offering more legroom), leg rest, personal entertainment and dedicated cabin crews. ...
