V Air to sus­pend flights on its Taipei-Ma­cau route from July

The China Post - - TAIWAN BUSINESS -

V Air, a low-cost sub­sidiary of Tai­wan’s Tran­sAsia Air­ways, an­nounced it will sus­pend air ser­vice be­tween Taipei and Ma­cau from July 10, three months af­ter it com­menced op­er­a­tions on the route on April 10.

The air­line said that air tick­ets for flights on the route will be avail­able un­til July 10.

With a low pas­sen­ger load­ing rate of only 40 per­cent since the new air ser­vice was launched, the air­line de­cided to sus­pend the ser­vice, ac­cord­ing to V Air.

The choice of V Air’s flight sched­ules is not ideal, mak­ing the com­pany less com­pet­i­tive in the mar­ket.

How­ever, the Taoyuan- Bangkok route the air­line op­er­ates has been popular since it was launched last De­cem­ber and now en­joys an av­er­age rid­er­ship of 80 per­cent, which is ex­pected to con­tinue to grow, the air­line said.

It plans to in­crease ser­vice sched­ules to Bangkok from the cur­rent one flight per day to 10 flights per week, start­ing on July 2.
