It was believed that Taiwan’s EVA Air was optimizing operational efficiency by adding more Boeing 787s to its fleet, but the airline will not have all eggs in one basket. EVA announced on Tuesday in a stock exchange filing that it will place an order for 18 Airbus A350-1000s as well as ordering 15 A321neo’s. While welcomed by Airbus on X, the deal needs to be finalized, the airframer says. 

EVA Air has relied on Boeing for much of its long-haul fleet requirements. The airline started operating the 777-300ER in June 2006 and has grown the fleet to 34 aircraft until September 2017. This makes it a mixed fleet of young aircraft that are around or past their mid-life. Three Airbus A330-200s are even 18 years old, with nine A330-300s between eleven and six years old.
