Eva Air to open Taipei-Mumbai passenger route

Taipei: In order to cut losses caused by soaring fuel prices, Taiwan's Eva Airways has drawn up restructuring plans including the opening of a Taipei-Mumbai passenger route and a US- China cargo route, EVA Air president Chen Hsin-teh said Monday. EVA Air, Taiwan's second-largest airline, maintained steady growth in the first half of 2006, but profits were minimal due to surging fuel prices, forcing EVA Air to restructure its operations, Broadcasting Corp of China (BCC) quoted Chen as saying.EVA plans to open a three-times-a-week regular Taipei-Mumbai flight in October, making it Taiwan's second air link with India after the island's largest airline China Airlines launched its Taipei-New Delhi flight in 2002, BCC quoted him as saying.
On the cargo front, Chen said EVA would start operating cargo flights between Shanghai and the US as a partner of Shanghai Airlines (SAL).
