Customer Service & Contingency Plan

EVA Airways is committed to maintain the highest level of safety, service, comfort and convenience to our customers. This Customer Service Plan is introduced in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) set forth in 14 CFR section 259.5 and is applicable for flights to and from the US. However, some of the services and assurances set out in this plan are also provided on other non-US flights.

Baggage delivery

It is our goal that our customers and their baggage travel on the same flight and that baggage is delivered to our customers on time. In case your baggage is delayed, we will make every reasonable effort to return it to you within 24 hours. There are a number of factors that can cause baggage to be delayed, sometimes for more than 24 hours. These include: customs and immigration procedures, unusual operational interruptions, and/or the handling baggage by other carriers (for itineraries involving more than one airline).

If you are unable to locate a bag upon arrival, you should notify an EVA airways baggage services agent prior to customs clearance. A report will be filed for you at that time, and you will be given a phone number for follow-up. You will receive periodic updates regarding the status of your baggage.

When you make your reservations, please use the same English name that appears on your passport and provide your current daytime and evening telephone numbers. We will give you your own confirmation or record locator number, and a time limit for how long we can hold the reservation before you need to pay for your ticket.
