Due to the global impact of COVID-19, the number of international flights and passengers fell dramatically, leading SKYTRAX to suspend its annual World Airline Awards in 2020. This year, SKYTRAX conducted its annual airline survey online and extended its questionnaire availability from September 2019 through July 2021 and invited travelers to evaluate their airline experiences over an 18-month period. Throughout the pandemic, EVA has worked hard to maintain basic services to most of its major destinations and adjusted ground and inflight operations to balance COVID-19 prevention measures with its trademark high-quality service.

“We are grateful for all of the support passengers from around the world continue to give us,” said EVA President Clay Sun. “Even as COVID-19 has changed the way people travel, we have not stopped working to identify and develop new and better ways to give our passengers the safest, most comfortable and enjoyable flying experiences possible. We have tested Affinidi, AOKpass and IATA Travel Pass and have not stopped evaluating other digital health verification platforms. With these and other leading-edge services, we are determined to offer the best, most passenger-friendly paperless, zero-contact airport environment available. Our COVID-19 prevention measures are already recognized among the world’s best and we have been awarded for these protocols by global rating organizations.  Every bit of positive recognition we receive is encouragement for the hard work of everyone at EVA.”
