China Airlines will launch a seasonal Taipei-Melbourne-Christchurch route this winter.
From October 25, the carrier will fly the triangle service three-times weekly on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
While flight times have yet to be confirmed, flights CI057/CI058 will be operated by an A330-300 aircraft offering 30 seats in business, and 277 in economy.
The service will complement the airline’s existing Taipei–Sydney–Christchurch route. Flights between Sydney and Christchurch began in December 2014.
