TAIPEI, Oct 31 (GCTL) - EVA Airways Corp (EVA) is mulling a daily flight between Taipei and Paris as a new driver for both sales and profitability.
The nation’s second-largest airline in terms of fleet size operates four flights a week between Taipei and Paris, but hopes to increase the number to seven in the near term, a company executive said before one of the carrier’s Hello Kitty-themed aircraft landed at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport on Thursday morning.
“We hope the introduction of the Hello Kitty-themed aircraft for the service between Taipei and Paris helps EVA to gain brand awareness and popularity in the French market, while further helping us win the right to raise flight frequency on this route,” EVA chairman Chang Kuo-wei told reporters before the takeoff, citing the load factor of more than 80 percent on the route.
