Qantas Executive Manager International Sales Stephen Thompson said Qantas was pleased to offer its customers two new non-stop travel options to another destination in Asia.
Qantas will soon offer customers direct access to Taiwan with the launch of a new codeshare agreement with China Airlines.
From 15 October*, customers will be able to travel on codeshare services operated by China Airlines from Sydney and Brisbane to Taipei, with up to ten return services per week available between Australia and Taipei during peak seasons.
The new codeshare agreement follows other recent initiatives to strengthen Qantas’ presence in growth markets, including a recent expansion of its codeshare with LAN across South America and the new codeshare agreement with Bangkok Airways to resort destinations in Thailand and Cambodia.
China Airlines services between Australia and Taipei are operated by A330 aircraft. The new codeshare services operated by China Airlines will be available for booking from 1 September, for travel from 15 October 2014.*
