EVA Air (BR) will begin nonstop flights from Taipei to two well-known European cities: Milan on October 25, 2022, and Munich on November 3, 2022.
The routes will consist of two weekly flights to Milan and four weekly flights to Munich.
In addition to the present London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Vienna gateways, the addition of the Milan and Munich services would give EVA the best-developed Taiwan-Europe network with the highest frequency, giving passengers more options on well-traveled routes. On July 6, 2022, travelers will be able to book flights and purchase tickets at the airline’s website.
First European Route Expansion in 25 Years
EVA had intended to begin service to Milan in February 2020, but the pandemic and related lockdowns prevented it. It is currently pushing forward with service to the financial center and second-largest city in Italy. The Milan and Munich services are the airline’s first route expansion in the European market by EVA in 25 years.
EVA runs direct flights to Taipei from London and Amsterdam with a stop in Bangkok in addition to nonstop flights from Paris, Vienna, and London. When choosing to arrive in one place and depart from another, the new service will allow business and leisure visitors more itinerary options.
Just like passengers from Paris and Vienna can currently, travelers from Milan and Munich will be able to arrive at Taiwan’s Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) in the early morning and quickly connect to one of EVA’s regular flights to destinations around the northeast and southeast Asia.
