CAL Meets with President of the Senate Delegation and Hopes for Closer Taiwan-Czech Ties

2020 Aug 31

Mr. Su-chien Hsieh, Chairman of China Airlines, Taiwan’s flag carrier, met with a delegation headed by President of the Senate Miloš Vystrčil this morning (8/31). The two parties discussed future opportunities for cooperation once borders are re-opened, and expressed hopes that closer ties will foster greater economic and trade between Taiwan and the Czech Republic.

Prague is a key hub of trade, commerce and tourism in Europe. China Airlines and Czech Airlines are currently both members of the SkyTeam Alliance, with code-share flights that connect Prague, via other European destinations that China Airlines flies to. Factors such as the development of the Taiwan-Czech market, the global aviation network and its European market strategy are now being assessed by China Airlines. The recovery of the overall aviation market in the post-COVID era is also being monitored as well. Feasibility of introducing Taipei-Prague services in the future is now being actively studied.
