EVA Air ramps up Brisbane-Taipei flights

Star Alliance member EVA Air is boosting its flights between Brisbane and Taipei, jumping from two return flights per week to five return services.

From Wednesday October 5 2016, EVA Air will serve Brisbane on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with flight BR316 pushing back at 11:45am for a 6:45pm arrival into the Taiwanese capital.

On the return, BR315 is wheels-up at 11pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, ahead of a 9:50am touchdown in Brisbane the following morning.

Served by the airline’s Airbus A330-200 aircraft, ‘Premium Laurel’ business class flyers will find four rows of seats in a 2-2-2 configuration with angled-flat – although not fully-flat – beds, with the rest of the aircraft given over to economy.

Brisbane is EVA Air’s only destination in Australia, with the revised flight times making for easier connections across the airlines local and long-haul network.

SkyTeam alliance member China Airlines also flies between Brisbane and Taipei, which passengers can book as a Qantas codeshare to earn frequent flyer points and status credits.

Worth noting that the BNE-TPE sector will now be a day flight as opposed to a red eye - this means that same day connections in TPE will now focus on Europe/America destinations (with opportunities now for same day connections to LAX and JFK in both directions) as opposed to destinations across Asia many of which will now require an overnight stay.
