Taiwan to add flights to Italy

23 Apr 2009

Travellers between Taiwan and Italy can enjoy more flights and two additional routes as both countries have forged a new air services agreement.

Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said the governments of the two countries have agreed to add Kaoshiung and Milan to the list of destinations. The new air pact also allows each country to nominate a second airline to fly between Taiwan and Italy.

CAA director-general Lee Long-wen told local media the new bilateral agreement increases flights between Taipei and Rome from three to seven times weekly and vice versa.

China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest carrier, is the only airline to fly the Taipei-Rome route. Italian carrier Alitalia operates a code-share agreement with CAL. Flights between the two countries include a stopover in Bangkok, Thailand.

Lee said that another Taiwan carrier EVA Airways has expressed interest in offering new flights that would open up with the amended air service agreement.
