China Airlines has upgraded its Taipei-Vancouver
route with a new Airbus A350 aircraft.
The A350 has 306 seats in a three-class
configuration, with 32 seats in Premium Business, 31 seats in
Premium Economy and 243 seats in Economy class.
China Airlines began introducing its new
long-haul fleet of NextGen B777 and A350 passenger aircraft in 2014.
Now, all ten B777 aircraft have been delivered while deliveries of all fourteen
A350 aircraft are scheduled to be completed in 2018.
All China Airlines' North
American destinations including Los Angeles, New York and San
Francisco, are now flown by new B777 or A350 aircraft.
And to further improve the quality of service for
passengers, China Airlines will begin operating the
A350 on the Taipei-Honolulu route from 29 October
2017, as well as the Taipei-London and Taipei-Sydney route
from 1 December. The London route will have 4 flights per
week while the Sydney route will be increased to 2 flights per day.
Codesharing with SkyTeam and other partner airlines is also being
used to improve the convenience of connecting flights. Travelers
flying to Vancouver, for example, can continue on to Calgary,
Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Georgetown, Terrace and
Victoria with Canada's Westjet. The 8 inland Canadian destinations
with 55 flights per week will strengthen the China Airlines
network making it more attractive to travelers.
