Eva Air announces Chicago and increases New York JFK

Eva Air has officially confirmed that it will be significantly expanding its presence in USA from October 2016 by launching new services to ORD-Chicago along with increasing New York JFK.

Chicago-Taipei nonstop will be inaugurated on 03OCT16 operating 4 times per week using a Boeing 777-300ER using the below mentioned schedule:

Days: 2/3/5/7

BR 56 Dep TPE 1950 Arr ORD 1940
BR 55 Dep ORD 0020 Arr TPE 0600

As far as New York JFK-TPE is concerned, frequencies are being further boosted from 10 weekly to double daily nonstop effective 03NOV16 using a B777-300ER exclusively.

BR's USA expansion in particular has been a key component of its long haul strategy and Miami airport officials have now confirmed that they are keenly lobbying Eva Air to consider launching TPE-MIA as they want a well known hub & spoke carrier operating to the city rather than one that is more reliant on point to point traffic.
