Local airlines and foreign carriers have unveiled new direct flights and code-share routes between
Taiwan and major international destinations, the latest in a series of public and private sector efforts to expand transportation links between the nation and South and Southeast Asia.
Taiwan’s EVA Airways Corp. and Air India launched Dec. 1 a code-share Taipei-Mumbai route that will connect EVA flights from Taipei to Bangkok and Singapore with Air India services between the two Southeast Asian cities and the Indian metropolis.
EVA, which operates 24 flights a week to Bangkok and two daily flights to Singapore, said the service allows for more convenient connections by enabling passengers to travel using one ticket and check luggage through to their final destination.
Vietnamese budget airline Vietjet Air has announced the commencement of ticket sales for its new Taichung-Ho Chi Minh City direct route. Slated to begin Jan. 15, the service will comprise four round-trip flights a week. [FULL STORY]
