China Airlines to Increase Services in October

Taiwan’s China Airlines will increase services to several key destinations in September and October after a near-total suspension of flights due to the decline of travel caused by the COVID-19 epidemic.

The carrier will increase passenger services to destinations in North America, Southeast Asia, Japan, and Korea in October as passenger numbers and demand rises. China Airlines continues to assess travel demand as well as national border restrictions and quarantine policies during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
