Taiwanese carrier China Airlines continues to expand on an already extensive network, launching three new services to Japan including Taipei-Kagoshima, Taipei-Shizuoka, and Taipei-Toyama flights.
The landmark open-sky agreement between Taiwan and Japan opens this addition to the existing Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Okinawa, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Miyazaki and Sapporo services.
These new services will expand the Japan service offering travellers more opportunity to enjoy China Airlines’ high-quality services and delectable in-flight cuisine to 11 cities through 119 weekly roundtrip flights.
With only one stop at Taipei from Australia to Japan, China Airlines offers travellers more flexibility with their itineraries by allowing fly into and out of any of these 11 destinations (open jaw travel permitted).
In March 2012, China Airlines launched Taipei-Kagoshima and Taipei-Shizuoka routes, with flights every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Both routes are serviced by Boeing 737-800 aircraft and equipped with eight Business Class seats and 150 Economy Class seats.
Kagoshima is home to UNESCO World Heritage Site Yakushima, an island covered in a dense ancient forest. Shizuoka, renowned for its hot springs, waterfalls, and lakes, is also a popular destination for exploring nature.
The launch of the Taipei-Toyama route in April 2012 offers flights every Monday and Friday, serviced by Boeing 737-800 aircraft. This allows travellers the convenience of a direct flight instead of having to use charter flights or overland transportation.
A perennial favourite of worldwide tourists, the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in Toyama is and covered in snow during winter, revealing a breathtaking snow corridor with walls as high as 20 meters.
In addition, Toyama offers other attractions including the mirages of Uozu and Ogimachi Village in Shirakawa-Go.
