Mr. Ray Conner, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

K.W Chang, EVA Chairman, said, “We have introduced a new livery design to indicate our dedication to innovation. EVA was a launch customer for the 777-300ER in 2005 and the aircraft has become the foundation of our long-haul fleet. By the end of 2017, we will be operating more than 30 Boeing 777-300ERs. These new generation Boeing 777-300ERs have markedly enhanced our in-flight service and cabin environment.”

EVA’s new corporate identity keeps its original compass design, borrowed from the logo of Evergreen Group, EVA’s parent company. The design represents the airline’s seamless network and services. In the livery, the shortened tail design establishes the compass as the central point for the EVA Air brand and symbolizes the carrier’s dedication to quality service and flight safety.

Ray Conner, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said, “We are delighted that EVA chose to introduce its brand new livery on the 777-300ER. The 777-300ER is a pioneer airplane and has assisted EVA in providing world-class service to its customers. The Boeing Company is very proud to play a central role in boosting EVA’s brand and their continued achievements.”

Presently, EVA Air operates more than 36 Boeing airplanes, including 21 777-300ERs. The airline looks to introduce seven additional 777-300ERs to its fleet towards the end of 2016 and deploy them on North American routes.

The 777-300ER is one of the most energy and cost-efficient airplanes in its class. It also one of the most reliable twin-aisle aircraft in the world and possesses the highest cargo capability if any passenger airplane in service. The 777-300ER will undergo further improvements in 2016 to reduce fuel consumption by 2 percent.
