“EVA is proud to have been a Star Alliance member since June 2013. We are celebrating our 10th Star Alliance Membership anniversary with a series of special events and programs. We have always been dedicated to customer service. Part of this dedication includes integration of ESG criteria into our operations. This new 787-10 delivery gave us the opportunity to both celebrate our 10th year of membership with Star Alliance livery and use Sustainable Aviation Fuel on our ferry flight. These actions symbolize the close connection between EVA and Star Alliance and demonstrate EVA’s commitment to reaching Net Zero by 2050.”
