“Reaching the highest bar to win the SKYTRAX 5-Star Airline Rating is an honor and the best affirmation we could receive of the good and hard work all our employees perform on a daily basis,” said EVA President Clay Sun. “We are grateful to every passenger for their trust and support and will continue to pursue excellence and continuously introduce the latest technology to optimize our services in order to bring a more comfortable, safe and enjoyable flight journey to all passengers.”

EVA launched the world’s first Premium Economy Class in 1992, leading the airline industry and setting the pace for widespread adoption of this innovative cabin. As it continues to expand its fleet and network, EVA is adding its latest Premium Economy in-between the Royal Laurel and Economy Classes on its Boeing 787-9s, refreshing and reconfiguring the aircraft. It will introduce the first upgraded B787-9 before the end of 2024 and the rest of the fleet will undergo the upgrade process. EVA will use them to facilitate flight scheduling and further elevate service quality, enabling more passengers to enjoy higher quality onboard experiences at affordable fares.

In order to further optimize in-flight services, starting from July 2024, EVA will offer Taiwan’s famous Kanpai Group Japanese-style barbecue meals to passengers in all three cabin classes, initially available on routes departing from Taipei to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and New York. On top of that, the service items are constantly improving; its Royal Laurel Class exclusive Giorgio Armani amenity kit and Premium Economy Class Kipling amenity kit received “Best Onboard Amenities Kit (Business)” from Onboard Hospitality magazine and “Asia Best Premium Economy Class Amenity Kit” from PAX International at this year’s WTCE (World Travel Catering Expo) in Germany. The new collection will launch in the second half of 2024, bringing a refreshing experience to passengers.

SKYTRAX derives its annual “Global Airline Awards” from analyses of results of an international passenger service survey that measures satisfaction with individual air travel experiences. The organization launched online questionnaires that reached hundreds of countries and more than 21 million travelers to evaluate services from airports to cabins for more than 350 airlines and airports.
