HOUSTON — EVA Air is adding Tuesday service to its Houston schedule, increasing flights from six weekly to daily service from George Bush Intercontinental Airport, starting Oct. 3, 2016.

Flights arrive in Taipei early in the morning the following day, conveniently timed for a full day of work or onward travel on an easy EVA connecting flight to one of the many destinations it serves within Asia. Travelers can book EVA’s daily Houston flights now through travel agents, the airline’s ticket offices and on its website.

The daily service will make flying to and from Asia more convenient for both business and leisure travelers and allow greater itinerary flexibility. EVA Air flight BR051 departs Bush Intercontinental (IAH) at 12:50 a.m. and arrives at Taoyuan International Airport (TPE), just outside of Taipei, at 6 a.m. the next day. Return flight BR052 leaves TPE at 10 p.m. and lands in IAH at 11 p.m. the same day. 

Along with increasing Houston frequency, EVA is also introducing morning arrivals and midday departures in New York where it will be operating two flights a day to/from Taipei by Oct. 3. In Seattle, it is adding three flights and will be operating 10 a week by Nov. 19. It also adjusted its Los Angeles schedule so that one of its three daily flights now arrives in the early morning and departs midday. And it is increasing frequencies on routes within Southeast Asia, boosting the number of easy onward connections from North America via Taipei to 128 a week by year-end. Among current routes, it is adding more flights to Manila and Saigon.

From current gateways in Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver, EVA already offers more flights and seats between North America and Taiwan with more one-stop connections to more destinations throughout Asia and Mainland China than any other airline.
