China Airlines set to fly Kaohsiung-Changzhou
China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest carrier, said Friday that it will launch direct flights between southern Taiwan’s Kaohsiung and Changzhou in coastal China Sept. 16. The flights will be offered every Wednesday and Saturday, using the Embraer regional jet-190, which seats 104 passengers, the airline said.
Starting Oct. 25, the carrier will use Boeing 737-800 jets that can accommodate 158 passengers on the route.
Changzhou, located in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province, will be the third Chinese destination for Kaohsiung, after Shanghai and Hangzhou cities.
CAL will also be the only Taiwanese carrier to operate on the Kaohsiung-Changzhou route, which is part of its bid to expand its cross-Taiwan Strait flight network.
