China Airlines to Launch Seattle Service

China Airlines is expanding its North American network with non-stop flights to Seattle starting July 14

Taiwan-based China Airlines will begin offering non-stop flights to Seattle, the “Emerald City”, starting July 14, 2024. The Taipei-Seattle route will expand the carrier’s passenger services to the northwestern USA by offering five weekly flights with the Airbus A350-900.

In addition to providing business travellers with even more options for travel between Taiwan and the Americas, China Airlines will leverage its extensive regional network to expand its share of the transfer market in Asia and boost business growth.

The China Airlines Taipei-Seattle service will depart every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The outbound flight CI022 from Taiwan to Seattle will take off from Taoyuan Airport at 23:30 and arrive in Seattle at 19:50 local time after 11 hours of flying. The return flight CI021 will take off at 01:40 local time from Seattle and arrive back at Taoyuan International Airport in Taiwan at 05:05 the following morning after 13 hours of flying.

China Airlines seeks to take advantage of the strong demand in the US-Taiwan travel market and the addition of the non-stop service to Seattle represents an important step in the carrier’s expansion of its North American network. More than 50 million travelers passed through Seattle Airport in 2023 making it the largest airport in Northwest USA. The new Seattle service features morning arrivals and evening departures for the convenience of travellers flying to and from North America or major cities in Asia. China Airlines can also provide interline ticketing to 50 popular inland destination cities, including Portland, Chicago, Boston, Las Vegas, Orlando, and Atlanta.

China Airlines has operated in the North American market for more than half a century and growth has been particularly strong in the post-pandemic period. The carrier currently flies to five major cities in the USA and Canada, including Los Angeles, Ontario (CA), San Francisco, New York, and Vancouver. The introduction of the Seattle route will expand China Airlines’ North American network to six non-stop destinations.
