Taipei, April 1 (CNA) Taiwan-based Mandarin Airlines (華信航空) said Friday that it will
launch flights between Taichung in central Taiwan and Wuxi City in China’s Jiangsu province later this month.
The new route will be launched on April 29, the airline said, adding that it will provide two flights between Taichung and Wuxi every week.
The promotional price for the new route will be as low as NT$4,999 (US$155), which will be available by the end of May, according to the air carrier.
Mandarin Airlines is a subsidiary of China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest air carrier, which operates four weekly flights between Taipei and Wuxi.
The launch of the new route will make travel easier for Taiwanese businesspeople who are from central Taiwan and have investments in Jiangsu’s Suzhou, Wuxi and Kunshan cities, the airline said. [FULL STORY]
