Boeing (Chicago, Seattle and Charleston) announced today at the Paris Air Show that EVA Air (EVA Airways) (Taipei) intends to purchase five 777F Freighters. The commitment, valued at more than $1.5 billion at list prices, represents the first 777 Freighters to join EVA’s fleet and will be posted to Boeing’s Orders & Deliveries website once finalized.
The Taiwanese airline plans to use the new freighters to bolster its fleet in an effort to meet growing demand in the air cargo market.
EVA Airways currently operates more than 35 Boeing airplanes in its fleet, including 20 777-300 ERs. EVA is one of the world’s leading 777-300 ER operators with unfilled orders for 14 777-300 ERs – both direct purchased and leased. The carrier plans to grow its operational twin-aisle fleet to more than 60 airplanes by the end of 2025.
