Taiwan's national carrier, EVA Air, is set to open a direct flight connecting Taipei and Phuket, Thailand, on April 2, 2020.
The new route will be served by an Airbus A330-200 with a two-class configuration, featuring 24 Royal Laurel business class seats and 228 economy class seats.
This Taipei-Phuket route will be available three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The new route is said to reduce travel time by at least six hours, offering passengers a more convenient option.
According to a statement, EVA Air will be the only airline to offer the direct flight from Taipei to Phuket.
“Phuket is a world famous travel destination. With the launch of this new service, EVA will expand its Southeast Asian network to 13 destinations, offering 145 flights every week,” said the airline’s president Clay Sun.
EVA Air is a Star Alliance member. The airline was recently ranked eighth in the World’s Top-20 Airlines 2020 by airlineratings.com, an annual ranking that is based on 12 criteria, including fleet age, passenger reviews, profitability, investment rating, product offerings and staff relations.
