China Airlines flies brand new jet to Amsterdam
China Airlines has started flying its latest long-haul aircraft, the Airbus A350, to Amsterdam. The Taiwanese national carrier commenced a new non-stop service to the Netherlands in December 2016, in partnership with KLM. And effective 8 January 2017, the four weekly Taipei-Amsterdam flights will be operated using the 306-seat, four-class A350. China Airlines took delivery of its first ever A350 in September last year.
Meanwhile, the Taiwanese airline has revealed plans to reduce its Indian operations. For the 2017 summer season, running from 26 March to 28 October, the airline will cut its Taipei-Delhi service from three to two flights per week.
