EVA Air, the second largest airline in Taiwan after China Airlines, has received its fifth Airbus A321-200 aircraft.
The aircraft is the first airplane in the country with fuel-saving wingtip extensions or sharklets. All of the airline’s remaining A321-200s scheduled for delivery will also be equipped with sharklets.
The new aircraft will operate on regional routes and offer enhanced passenger comfort on short-haul and medium-haul flights. EVA Air has painted the aircraft in Star Alliance livery.
The four A321-200s already in service with the airline operate on flights from Taiwan to northeast Asia, Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China and southeast Asia.
