Taiwan’s China Airlines and its subsidiary Mandarin Airlines are to increase capacity on several cross-straits routes between the island and mainland China.
The airline will now use an Airbus A330-300 on all flights from Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport to Xian, Shenyang, Changsha and Zhengzhou on the mainland.
Previously, the carrier used a B737-800 with eight Dynasty (Business) Class Seats and 150 Economy Class seats, while the Airbus offers 36Dynasty Supreme Class and 277 Economy Class. The A330s also offer better seat pitches and inflight entertainment options.
All four routes have a twice-weekly frequency.
