UNI Air (Chinese: 立榮航空; pinyin: Lìróng Hángkōng) is an airline based in Zhongshan, Taipei, Taiwan. It is a domestic and regional subsidiary of EVA Air. It was known as Makung International Airlines until 1996, when EVA Air took a majority share of the airline. In 1998, the airline merged with Great China Airlines and Taiwan Airways, which EVA Air also had interests in, to form UNI Airways (UNI Air). The airline has had the largest market share in the domestic Taiwan market in recent years, and has expanded to include international flights. A few of its McDonnell Douglas MD-90 aircraft have been repainted and are flying for parent carrier EVA Air due to overcapacity. In recent years, Uni Air has launched services to international destinations from the southern Taiwanese port city of Kaohsiung. In 2007, the airline received permission to begin flights to Japan.

UNI Air operates a fleet of McDonnell-Douglas MD 90-30, Bombardier Dash 8-Q300, and ATR 72-600 aircraft. Nine additional ATR 72-600 turboprops are placed on order, as well as an interest to lease several Airbus A321s (from EVA's batch), and they are due to replace the MD 90-30 and Q300s.
