The Taoyuan - Ontario route will tap into the market for travel between Taiwan, Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau among eastern Los Angeles Chinese community.

Ontario Airport's location means it's close to local Chinese communities and can attract travelers from the east side of Greater Los Angeles. Ontario Airport is also the e-commerce hub for the US west coast so it could well create new cargo sources for China Airlines too.

The latest move by China Airlines is expected to optimize route revenues. The LAX and ONT airports will become twin hubs for China Airlines operations in the Greater Los Angeles region resulting in economic synergies from dual airports, while also expanding the reach and convenience of services in the region.
