EVA launches Taipei-Tokyo freighters
EVA Air Cargo launched twice-weekly freighter flights between Taipei’s Taoyuan International and Tokyo Haneda International Airport on 8 August.
MD-11 freighters will fly initially on Wednesday and Friday from Taiwan, returning from Japan on Thursday and Saturday.
Most of the traffic is expected to be electronics, car parts, machinery and fresh seafood.
The new flights are in addition to existing freighter flights from Taoyuan and Narita airport, on the outskirts of Tokyo. Haneda has the advantage of being closer to central Tokyo. Haneda is EVA’s third Japanese destination; the carrier also serves Osaka’s Kansai International Airport.
The Taiwanese carrier added that all its freighter flights from Tokyo arrive in Taiwan at around midnight, offering convenient early morning onward connections to all other destinations on its worldwide network.
