    EVA Air is introducing more flights between Taipei and Japan, expanding its network in Northeast Asia. It launched service from Taipei to Okayama on April 3, 2013 and will add Asahikawa as a destination on May 2. It will also increase frequency on its regular Taipei-Hakodate route from two to four flights a week on May 1. With these additions, EVA will be serving 11 destinations in Japan from Taiwan with 67 flights a week. Information and schedules are available on the EVA website.

    EVA flies its new Taipei-Okayama route every Wednesday and Saturday, using a McDonnell Douglas MD-90. Often referred to as the sunny country because of its low rainfall, Okayama city and prefecture are located in Japan’s Chugoku region on the main island of Honshu. By high-speed rail or Shinkansen, Okayama is only 40 minutes south of Japan’s third-largest metropolis, Osaka. EVA passengers can easily fly into Okayama and depart Japan via the airline’s daily Osaka service or vice versa.

    To both optimize resources and cultivate travel markets between Japan and Taiwan, EVA is operating the Okayama route as a regular, seasonal service from April through November and flying to Niigata, located in the middle of Honshu, December through March. The two regions offer distinct seasonal attractions.
