EVA Air is launching a Taipei-Osaka-Los Angeles route on March
30, giving passengers an alternative to its Taipei hub and nonstop
service between Southern California and the thriving Japanese city.
EVA is now the only airline with scheduled nonstop flights between
Osaka, Japan and Los Angeles. The new flights will be operated
three days a week, on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
With the new routing, the airline is increasing its Taipei-Osaka
frequency from seven to 10 flights a week. EVA will serve the
long-haul, Taipei-Osaka-Los Angeles flights with new Boeing
777-300ERs, among the most technologically advanced aircraft in use
today. EVA is now flying B777-300ERs for almost all of its
EVA’s B777s carry 316 passengers with 42 in Premium Laurel
Class, 63 in Elite and 211 in Economy. The latest in-flight
amenities, including audio/video on demand with movies, games and
children’s programming are available in all cabins. With the launch
of the Taipei-Osaka-Los Angeles route, EVA is adding more Japanese
cabin attendants and serving gourmet meals from Ding Tai Fung, an
acclaimed international restaurant group.
The Premium Laurel cabin offers passengers first-class services
at the cost of business class. Elite Class is a cabin in between
business and economy, with services close to domestic business at
fares similar to economy.
The new service is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles in the
morning so that passengers traveling from Taiwan can make same-day
connections to other U.S. destinations. The schedule is especially
convenient for business travelers with tight itineraries.
The flight from Taipei to Osaka departs at 10:30 a.m. and
arrives at 2 p.m., then leaves Osaka at 3:30 p.m. and touches down
in Los Angeles at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
The reverse flight from Los Angeles leaves at 12:10 p.m. and
arrives in Osaka at 4:05 p.m. the next day. It then departs Osaka
at 5:30 p.m. and arrives in Taipei at 7:25 p.m.
EVA now offers 63 flights a week to a total of six destinations
in Japan, also serving Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sapporo and
