Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 2 December 2009

China Airlines flights to Rome have started stopping over in Delhi instead of Bangkok. The change saves almost one hour of travel time and makes CAL the first airline to operate a direct flight between Delhi and Rome.

China Airlines operates three round-trip flights each week from Taoyuan International Airport to Delhi and Rome. A specially retrofitted A330-300 is being used on the new route, with a two-class configuration.

China Airlines not only provides Italian-speaking cabin crew, but has also recruited more flight attendants from India, to provide better service.

Indias economy has grown rapidly in recent years, and the country has a fascinating culture, while Rome remains a renowned historical city famous for its leisure and business travel.

The link between Delhi and Rome is expected to provide great commercial benefit, as well as enhancing CALs extensive international network through its Taoyuan airport hub.
