China Airlines to serve Melbourne from October

30 Jul 2015 by Clement Huang

China Airlines will launch a new seasonal route from Taipei to Melbourne this October, which will continue on to New Zealand.

From October 25 to March 26, 2016, China Airlines will operate the Taipei–Melbourne–Christchurch triangle service every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

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 three-times weekly service will complement the carrier’s existing Taipei–Sydney–Christchurch route, providing travellers with more connectivity options. 

Flights between Sydney and Christchurch began in December 2014, and became a surprise hit for China Airlines, with the average load factor hitting 90 per cent during the summer season.
