China Airlines’ newest B777-300ER landed at Le Bourget, France last month marking the debut of China Airlines’ new twin-aisle aircraft at the Paris Air Show. China Airlines currently operates five newly configured B777- 300ERs on routes serving Hong Kong, Bangkok, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The airline is scheduled to receive five more in the next couple of years to support the launch of new European and North American routes.
Based in the northwestern city of Taoyuan, China Airlines is Taiwan’s largest carrier, with 115 destinations in 29 countries and regions worldwide.
The airline operates more than 100 flights weekly from mainland China to Taiwan, and that number is expected to grow as liberalisation of rules and regulations continues, allowing more mainland Chinese tourists to fly into and through Taiwan.
