China Airlines will operate a daily Taipei (Songshan) - Tokyo (Haneda) route with Airbus A321neo aircraft from July 1.

The service is scheduled to depart in the morning and return in the afternoon.

Passenger-carrying services will also be scheduled for Tokyo (Narita), Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka routes as well, with service frequency to Seoul in South Korea increasing to daily flights from August onwards.

Overall, Q3 will see the number of passenger flights increase by 40% with more than 150 passenger services each week, keeping pace with the recovery in travel demand.

For Southeast Asia routes, a weekly service for Kaohsiung-Manila was introduced in June to cater to travelers in southern Taiwan.

In August, the following changes will be made for southeast Asia routes departing from Taoyuan: services to Bangkok (Thailand) will be increased to 14 flights per week; services to Manila (Philippines), Ho Chi Min (Saigon) and Hanoi (Vietnam) will be increased to 10 flights per week; services to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) will be increased to four flights per week; services to Penang (Malaysia) will be increased to two flights per week; services to Singapore and Phnom Penh (Cambodia) will be increased to thrice weekly; and services to Yangon (Myanmar) will be increased to two flights per week.

China Airlines' Hong Kong route will also be increased to seven services per week with daily flights from July onwards and will be raised again in August to 10 flights per week.

Cross-strait routes such as Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai (Pudong) and Xiamen remain in service. From August onwards, services to Beijing and Chengdu will be increased to two flights per week, while the Taoyuan-Shanghai (Pudong) route will be increased to nine flights per week.

China Airlines’ long-haul North American routes to Los Angeles, Ontario, San Francisco and New York (USA) as well as Vancouver (Canada) are fully in place.

Services to Ontario will be increased to two flights per week in August. Flights to Los Angeles will be increased to five per week; the Taiwan and greater Los Angeles (California) area route will now include daily flights. The San Francisco service will be increased to five flights per week while Vancouver will be increased to thrice weekly.

On European routes, services to Frankfurt (Germany) will be increased to four flights per week; services to Amsterdam (Netherlands) will be increased to three flights per week; and services to London (UK) will be increased to two flights per week.

The Oceanic portfolio consists of Australia and New Zealand. For the Australian routes, Sydney and Melbourne will be increased to two flights per week, while Brisbane will have one passenger-carrying flight each week. Direct flights to Auckland (New Zealand) will be increased to one flight every two weeks.

China Airlines' A321neo passenger aircraft is now being rolled out throughout the network and four additional new aircraft will enter service this year.

Is this just a press release?

They used to offer Tokyo to Bangkok with a short stop in Taipei. The thing about that flight was that it was reasonably priced, left around 9 a.m. and got you into Bangers in time for a shower, rest, dinner and then....party!!! None of this arriving at midnight nonsense and wasting the entire first day.

Would be nice if this deal were re-instated.

China Air Lines is Taiwanese. Air China is the state owned airline of the PRC.

Are tourists even allowed into Taiwan and if they are it is with compulsory quarantine for some days along with tests. Coming to Japan maybe Taiwanese are permitted come o the North Korean style tours if they organise their visa and have the time for the compulsory quarantine on their return home to Taiwan of course,
