China Airlines Launches New Tokyo Services

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 2 November 2010

China Airlines has launched daily services linking Taipei and Kaohsiung to Tokyo.

The new services include two daily flights (CI-220/CI-221 and CI-222/CI-223) between Taipei-Songshan and Tokyo-Haneda airports, as well as two additional TSA-HND flights codeshared with Japan Airlines (CI-9220/CI-9223 and CI-9222/CI-9221).

CAL has also launched three new round-trip services between Kaohsiung and Tokyos Narita International Airport on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays (CI-102/CI-103).

China Airlines has a long history of serving Tokyos Haneda Airport dating back to 1967. Flights were interrupted in 1974 due to the break in diplomatic relations, but resumed the following year. In 2002, CAL moved to Narita International Airport, Tokyos main international gateway. Compared to Taoyuan-Narita services, the Songshan-Haneda flights will save passengers 4-6 hours of round-trip travel time, greatly closing the geographic distance between Taipei and Tokyo.

The airline now operates 36 weekly flights between points in Taiwan and Tokyo, as well as a total of 85 weekly flights to nine popular Japanese destinations including Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Okinawa, Miyazaki, Tokyo-Haneda and Tokyo-Narita.
