Skytrax, a leading global air transport rating organization that recently awarded Hobby Airport with a 4-star rating for 2016, recently named EVA Air a 5-star airline for the first time. EVA Air is one of eight airlines certified as 5-star quality, and now four of those airlines provide service out of Bush Intercontinental.
Along with EVA, carriers at Bush Intercontinental with 5 stars from Skytrax include All Nippon Airways, Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines.
Famous for its Hello Kitty-themed aircraft, EVA began operations at Bush Intercontinental in June 2015, and recently expanded its non-stop service to Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) in Taipei to six days a week. In October 2016, it plans to expand service to seven days a week.
