Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Wednesday, 27 August 2014

From 15 October 2014, Qantas will codeshare with China Airlines on flights from Sydney and Brisbane to Taipei, with up to ten return services per week available between Australia and Taipei during peak seasons.

China Airlines services between Australia and Taipei are operated with Airbus A330 aircraft.

The new codeshare services operated by China Airlines will be available for booking from 1 September, for travel from 15 October 2014.

Qantas Executive Manager International Sales Stephen Thompson, said, A key benefit of our extensive Asia network is the ability to travel to multiple destinations within Asia without the need to backtrack. The option to fly direct into Taipei, and return via Singapore, for example, will appeal to business travellers looking to maximise their time ... This new codeshare also strengthens our position in the region, and complements existing commercial relationships with three of the biggest carriers in Greater China China Eastern, China Southern, and through oneworld, Cathay Pacific.

The new codeshare agreement follows other recent initiatives to strengthen Qantas presence in growth markets, including a recent expansion of its codeshare with LAN across South America, and the expanded codeshare agreement with Bangkok Airways.
