China Airlines flights to Rome from Taiwan will now make a scheduled stop in Delhi instead of Bangkok.
The stopover in the Indian capital will save passengers almost an hour in travel time and make the carrier the first to operate flights to Rome from Delhi.
From today (December 1st), China Airlines is operating three weekly flights to the Italian capital from Taoyuan International Airport, with an A330-300 the aircraft of choice on the route.
In order for passengers’ experiences to be improved, the carrier employs Italian-speaking cabin crews and Indian flight attendants.
It is expected that the route will prove popular among both business and leisure passengers, with India’s economy continuing to go from strength to strength and Rome retaining its historical charm among city breakers.
China Airlines’ 2010 summer schedule will include increased frequencies on its flights to New York and Frankfurt, new flights to Sydney and non-stop flights to Vienna.
The changes have been attributed to falls in fuel prices, with the carrier’s summer timetable commencing on March 29th.
