Taipei, Jan. 27 (CNA) Russian airline Royal Flight is expected to launch regular flights to Taiwan later this year, the Civil Aviation Administration (CAA) under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications said Sunday.

The agency said it has received a letter from Russia’s civil aviation authorities designating Royal Flight to offer regular air services to Taiwan, but noted it has yet to receive a flight schedule application from the carrier.

The travel agency in Taiwan representing Royal Flight, Air Service Ltd., said the Russian carrier plans to launch nonstop scheduled service between Moscow and Taipei starting May 25.

The airline will fly between the two destinations once a week using Boeing 767-300 planes with over 300 seats. The flight takes about 10.5 hours, Air Service said.
