2020 Jan 06

Due to the strong outlook of the Southeast Asia travel market, China Airlines is following up on the launch of its first Cebu service in March by adding four weekly direct flights to Chiang Mai from June 23.

The Taipei (Taoyuan) - Chiang Mai route will be flown by Boeing 738 aircraft with a total seating capacity of 158. Flights will depart every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Flight CI851 will depart from Taipei at 07:30 in the morning and arrive at 10:20 local time. Flight CI852, the return service, will take off at 11:20 and arrive in Taipei at 16:35 local time.

Chiang Mai is the second largest city in Thailand. The city is known as a treasure trove of artistic architecture due to its many heritage sites and temples. In addition to taking a stroll through the historic city to experience the grandeur of the Lanna dynasty, the traditional cuisines of northern Thailand, jungle zipline tours, various natural sights and a pleasant climate all year round have all made Chiang Mai a top destination for visitors from across the world.

China Airlines is continuing to expand its global network by targeting European, American and Oceania travelers transiting through Taiwan, as well as the increasing popularity of self-guided tours among Taiwanese travelers. The carrier currently flies to 72 destinations including 15 in Southeast Asia, 16 in Northeast Asia, 27 in China, and 14 in Europe, America and Oceania. The 712 return flights a week provide travelers with a wide range of readily available flying options.

Note: The relevant applications and preparations for the China Airlines Taipei (Taoyuan) - Chiang Mai route are still underway, and are subject to government approval from the Taiwan and Thai civil aviation authorities.
