Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 29 August 2013

Emirates has confirmed that it will launch non-stop passenger services to Taipei, its 16th destination in the Far East, from 10th February 2014.

The airline will initially operate the route to Taipeis Taoyuan International Airport with six non-stop flights per week.

Emirates will use a three-class Boeing 777-300ER equipped with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and space for 304 passengers in Economy Class.

The aircraft also features ice, Emirates' inflight entertainment system, which offers over 1,400 channels showing the latest blockbusters, subtitled Hollywood films, music, TV and games.

Taipei, home to nearly seven million people, is an economic and cultural centre with renowned sights, attractions and a myriad of shopping options. The destination is famous for producing and exporting electronics, textiles, plastics and rubber, optical and photographic instruments and chemicals.

Emirates SkyCargo has operated a dedicated freighter service to Taipei since 2003. Given its status as a global trading hub and the demand, it is a natural progression for Emirates to launch passenger services to Taipei, said Barry Brown, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations East. Through Dubai, Emirates offers its international passengers a one-stop connection from Taipei to 70 countries in the Middle East, Africa 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.
