Its hub may be Taipei, but China Airlines is also a great option for those wanting easy, direct access to Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
The relative newcomer to Auckland Airport – it launched here in January – is Taiwan’s national airline and departs Auckland for Brisbane three times a week, on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
For those wanting to go further afield, Taipei and Taiwan connects you to the rest of Asia and beyond.
The most important thing is not to get them confused with another Auckland newcomer, China Southern Airlines, which flies direct to Guangzhou, China.
As a full-service airline, China Airlines provides state of the art entertainment systems and seasonal Chinese, Japanese and Western menus, plus a world first: Economy Class lumbar air cushions that automatically adjust to the lower back of each passenger. This helps reduce fatigue on long-haul flights.
