EVA Air has announced a deal with Airbus to secure new aircraft from the European plane maker.
At list price value, the deal was reported to be worth just slightly over USD 10 billion. However, customers will never pay the list price value for these aircraft.
A Commitment To New Widebody Jets
As part of the latest commitment, EVA Air has announced a deal for 18 Airbus A350-1000s, the most extended variant in the A350 series.
The Rolls Royce Trent XWBs power these Airbus A350-1000s, and the variant has become a famous aircraft for customers globally.
Specifics on delivery timeframe are yet to be officially revealed for the A350-1000 deal.
EVA Commits To The Airbus A321neo
The Airbus A321neo has quickly become one of the most in-demand narrowbody aircraft around the globe.
EVA Air has announced a deal for 15 Airbus A321neos as part of its future regional flying.
Ultimately, the delivery timeframe, alongside any potential options, has yet to be revealed for this deal. The expectation is that these details will come at a later date.
The EVA Air Fleet
EVA Air currently operates with a fleet of 85 in-service aircraft, per Cirium data.
The airline’s most significant fleet type when measured by active units is the 777-300ER, with a total of 34 in-service.
These Boeing 777s have an average age of 10.6 years. Therefore, this aircraft type is still relatively young.
However, the airline’s oldest aircraft type, when measured by average age, is the A330-200, sitting at 17.9 years.
The airline operates Boeing 787-9s and 787-10s as part of its next-generation widebody fleet. These aircraft types are among the youngest in operation currently.
