Since the inauguration of its maiden flight on July 01, 1991, EVA Air is currently serving 65 destinations over four continents, except Africa, with 67 aircraft (as of December 2014) and is still steadily expanding its operation network and fleet.
In 1997, after carefully nurturing an environment where faultless service quality and flight safety are the standard, EVA Air became the first airline in Taiwan to achieve official ISO-9002 Certification in three areas at the same time -- passenger, cargo and maintenance operations. Diligently upholding these objectives, EVA Air earned ISO-9001:2000 Certification for all categories of operation in 2001.
In addition, EVA has ensured quality, smooth ongoing operations and reduced costs by investing capital and expertise in airline-related companies, including Evergreen Sky Catering Corporation, Evergreen Airline Services Corporation, Evergreen Air Cargo Services Corporation, and other selected subsidiaries.
Operating strategies developed by the carrier are far-reaching. Company goals place equal importance on its passenger and cargo services, and it works in cooperation with affiliated carriers to maximize mutual efficiencies and effectively compete on a global scale. Its worldwide hub of operations at Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan has proven to be both successful and strategic.
EVA Air listed its stock on Taiwan’s TAISDAQ Market in October 1999, and moved to the main board, TSE, in September 2001.
