No details of the engine selection or delivery timeline were disclosed, however.

According to Cirium fleets data, EVA Air has 11 787-10s in operation, with another two on order. The aircraft, powered by GE Aerospace GEnx-1B engines, are mostly deployed on intra-Asian routes. 

EVA also has four -9s in service, and disclosed an order for five -9s in March 2023, with deliveries to commence in 2025. 

In January this year, the Star Alliance carrier also firmed up orders for 18 Airbus A350-1000s and 15 A321neos, which will replace its Boeing 777-300ERs and A321ceos.
