Starting 1st December 2017, China Airlines will bring their state-of-the-art A350-900 from Taipei to London Gatwick. The carrier is the latest to join a growing list of long-haul airlines flying from Asia. This additional European destination joins Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Rome and Vienna that the carrier also regularly flies to.
Initially flying 4 times a week, the route will connect the two cities through a 13-hour direct non-stop flight. CAL’s aircraft will be equipped with 32 Premium Business Class, 31 Premium Economy Class and 243 Economy Class seats. The design will be the more modern of their two long-haul products, with the 777 product still only flying to Frankfurt in Europe.
The airline is also going to start competing on the Kangaroo route, with a second flight to Sydney being introduced to offer better connections between London and Australia. Also from December 1 the Taipei-Sydney route will increase to two daily services and Taipei-Brisbane-Auckland will be upgraded to one service each day. “The move connects the Oceania and European networks to provide transit customers with more great options.” states China Airlines.
