EVA confirms order for five B777Fs

US planemaker Boeing and Taiwan’s EVA Air have finalised an order for five Boeing 777 freighters.
The order, with a list price value of more than $1.5bn, represents the first 777Fs to join EVA Air’s fleet, and the first to be delivered to a Taiwanese airline.
Boeing first announced EVA Air’s intent to order the five 777Fs at the 2015 Paris Air Show in June.
"Airfreight is an important link in global trade," said EVA Air chairman KW Chang, adding: "We are investing in the most advanced aircraft and committing ourselves to continuing to ensure efficient, reliable service.
"Quality service and flight safety are our top priorities at EVA and we apply the same high standards to cargo services. We are determined to make EVA the world’s best airline for both passenger and cargo services."
The airline plans to use the new freighters to bolster its fleet on transpacific and Asian routes in an effort to meet growing demand in the air cargo market.
"We are pleased to be the first airline in Taiwan to introduce Boeing 777 freighters," EVA president Austin Cheng said in his remarks, adding: "These freighters will be the backbone of our air cargo service for the next decade."
