EVA Air’s three-hour Cebu-Taipei flight, which was launched yesterday, will be serviced by Airbus 321-200s, which can carry up to 184 passengers.
The aircraft will depart Cebu at 11:05 a.m. daily, and arrive in Taipei at 2 p.m. on the same day. From Taipei, the aircraft will depart 7:10 a.m. daily, and arrive in Cebu at 10:05 a.m. on the same day.
EVA Air general manager Steven Wu said the newest route will connect Cebu to Taipei as well as to over 60 other international destinations through connecting flights.
“EVA Air is part of the Star Alliance, the biggest airline alliance in the world. Not only will it connect Cebu to Taipei, it will also connect Cebu to destinations in North America, Europe, Japan, Korea, mainland China and others,” he said.
