EVA Air to open Taipei to Mumbai passenger route
In order to cut losses caused by soaring fuel prices, Taiwan's EVA Airways has drawn up restructuring plans including the opening of a Taipei-Mumbai passenger route and a US-China cargo route, EVA Air president Chen Hsin-teh said Monday.
EVA Air, Taiwan's second-largest airline, maintained steady growth in the first half of 2006, but profits were minimal due to surging fuel prices, forcing EVA Air to restructure its operations, Broadcasting Corp. of China (BCC) quoted Chen as saying.
EVA plans to open a three-times-a-week regular Taipei-Mumbai flight in October, making it Taiwan's second air link with India after the island's largest airline China Airlines launched its Taipei-New Delhi flight in 2002, BCC quoted him as saying. EVA also plans to suspend its regular passenger flight to Hawaii in September and use the aircraft to enforce its South-East Asian routes.
No schedules available yet - wonder which aircraft and route
