Taiwan’s China Airlines plans to raise its Kaohsiung-Shanghai Pudong frequency on 10 November.

The carrier will raise the route’s frequency to five times weekly, up from twice weekly. It will deploy Airbus A330-300 aircraft on the additional services, says an airline official.

From 1 November, it will end its Taipei Taoyuan-Chiang Mai scheduled charter service, which it operates every four calendar days.

Meanwhile, its subsidiary Mandarin Airlines resumed its Taipei Taoyuan-Kalibo service on 18 October, using Embraer 190 aircraft.

The service is currently operated four times weekly and will be increased to daily from 27 October, adds the official.

Flightglobal’s FlightMaps Analytics show that China Airlines competes with Eva Air on the Kaohsiung-Shanghai Pudong route and with TransAsia Airways on the Taipei Taoyuan-Chiang Mai route.
