China Airlines to fly London-Taipei nonstop

17 Oct 2017 by Marisa Cannon

China Airlines is set to launch a nonstop service between Gatwick and Taipei from December 1.

Following a five year hiatus, the service will operate four times per week from Gatwick’s South Terminal using an A350-900, which can hold 306 passengers with business, premium economy and economy cabins.

Business class in the airline’s A350 offers lie-flat beds, aisle access for each seat and access to the onboard Sky Lounge bar. Premium economy seats recline within a hard shell, while economy seats feature a slimline design that the airline says allows for extra legroom.

China Airlines previously operated a route between Heathrow and Taipei between 2010 and 2012 and has served Amsterdam with an onward connection to London through a codeshare with KLM.

Flight schedule as follows:
