Eva Air’s inaugural Italy-Taiwan flight

By Friday, 04 November 2022 11:00

Eva Air has finally launched the first flight between Italy and Taiwan: the Boeing 777-300ER took off from Milan Malpensa on 27 October for Taipei, over two years later than the airline's original plans, due to the pandemic. There are currently two weekly frequencies with more on the way.

“Italy is now Taiwan's third trading partner in Europe”

"The opening of a new operational base in the European market for the first time in 25 years is a moment of great importance for us, and we are very happy that it will happen in Milan," said Clay Sun, president of Eva Air. "With the launch of the new Milan-Taipei flight, there will be more direct and consolidated contacts and exchanges between Italy and Taiwan in the economic-commercial, cultural, and academic fields. Italy is now Taiwan's third trading partner in Europe, after Germany and the Netherlands, and the world's 18th.”

Developing leisure and business traffic

"With Taipei the portfolio of routes expands, and the country’s connectivity with the rest of the world is improved in terms of number and quality. I hope that the frequencies between Taipei and Milan will soon increase, thanks to the traffic potential and the growth of traffic to and from Asia," said Armando Brunini, CEO of Sea, recalling how “Milan and the Lombardy region combine the right mix of leisure and business useful for developing traffic.”  

Taiwan had up to 11 million visitors annually pre-pandemic

Taiwan reopened its borders to tourists, including groups, on 13 October, ending the Covid-19 legislation's mandatory three-day quarantine period for arriving travellers. Taiwan's Transport Minister Wang Kwo-tsai hopes that by 2024 air travel to Taiwan will have returned to pre-crisis levels. Taiwan had up to 11 million visitors per year prior to the pandemic. Eva Air already has routes to London, Paris, Vienna, and Amsterdam in Europe, and the new Munich route will begin service on 3 November.
