Emirates is to begin daily, non-stop flights between Taipei and Dubai on 10 February 2014.

Emirates will fly a Boeing 777-300ER on the Taipei route, equipped with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and seats for 304 passengers in Economy Class.

The aircraft also features ice, Emirates' award-winning inflight entertainment system which has over 1,600 channels showing the latest blockbusters, subtitled Hollywood films, music, TV and games.

The partnership between Emirates and Taipei goes back to 2003 when our cargo arm, Emirates Skycargo, launched a dedicated freighter service between the two cities. Given Taipeis status as an international trading hub and the demand that we have been getting, it is a natural progression for the airline to launch passenger services here, said Edwin Lau, Emirates Vice President, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Through Dubai, Emirates offers its passengers from Taipei a one-stop connection to 70 countries in the Middle East, Africa, the Americas and Europe. We are confident that this new route will open up new trade opportunities across the Emirates network as well as support business and tourism travel to Taipei.

Sheng Chih Wei, the Executive Vice President of the Taoyuan International Airport Corporation, said, Taoyuan International Airport Corporation looks forward to welcoming Emirates arrival next February. Emirates will become the first airline to operate a non-stop route to the Middle East from Taoyuan International Airport. We believe the launch of this new route will offer our passengers with a more connected network.

Emirates now operates services to 138 destinations in 78 countries from Dubai.
