EVA Air, Taiwan’s leading independent airline, has welcomed in 2018 with a selection of new inflight gourmet treats and designer amenities, affirming the airline’s ongoing focus on creative, innovative passenger comforts and services that enhance inflight experiences. Starting in January 2018, EVA is introducing new menus and wine lists, designer pyjamas and bedding, gourmet cakes and cold-pressed juice, bringing something new to passengers in every cabin class.
Once again, EVA has worked with well-known brands, such as JL Design and bakery PAUL, to create memorable flights with unique tastes and touches.
Royal Laurel, Premium Laurel, Business Classes
EVA collaborated with hybrid international creative studio JL DESIGN to unveil brand-new menus and wine lists for Royal Laurel, Premium Laurel and Business Classes. Inspired by the theme, “Home for Every Season,” the designs suggest flying with EVA Air gives travelers comforts of home, including the bounty of Taiwan’s natural and cultural resources. Each cover represents one of Taiwan’s four seasons, spring, summer, fall and winter. EVA will use the new menus and wine lists throughout 2018.
From 1 January through 31 March, EVA is serving a refreshing new cold-pressed mango and mixed fruit juice beverages in Royal Laurel/Premium Laurel/Business Class cabins on flights departing Taiwan. Made from tree-ripened Taiwanese Irwin Mangoes with a tasty blend of sweet tangerine, passion fruit and banana, the delicious drink captures Taiwan’s most famous flavours in a glass.
Royal Laurel Class passengers on the Paris route and selected North America flights are being treated to an amazing new dessert created by EVA and SEASON Cuisine Pâtissiartism. A light and airy variation on classic French strawberry cake, the culinary creators named the new melt-in-your-mouth treat “Neige.” Composed of buttery almond cake layered with fromage blanc and fresh raspberry jam, “Neige” is deliciously satisfying.
Also this month, EVA is introducing new pyjamas created by London-based designer label APUJAN for Royal Laurel and Premium Laurel Class passengers. Known for fashions and knits that combine fiction, fantasy, history and literature in a fusion of East and West, EVA’s new pyjamas are tasteful, comfortable and allow freedom of movement during long-haul flights. The new blue pyjamas feature a print design that tells the story of traveling 36,000 ft. above the earth and is available on EVA flights longer than five hours throughout 2018.
Premium Economy Class
Along with officially renaming the pace-setting cabin in-between economy and business classes that it launched in December 1992, EVA is upgrading Premium Economy Class linens. On 10 January, 2018, the airline introduced cosy, golden-brown quilts in soft, comfy textures and large down pillows, approximately 12 in. x 16 in. (30 cm x 40 cm), that have uniquely patterned covers designed to promote sweet dreams on long-haul flights.
As a special snack in Economy Class, EVA began serving pound cake by century-old French bakery PAUL on non-lunch and non-dinner flights from Hong Kong to Taiwan on 1 November, 2017. The airline changes flavours every month and began 2018 by giving passengers a choice between chocolate or fruit pound cake.
