China Airlines : new flight to London
Taipei, Sept. 22 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest carrier, will operate four direct flights to London every week, starting from Dec. 1 this year. CAL direct flights between Taipei and London Heathrow were opened in March 2011, but were suspended one year later.
The destination airport this time will be Gatwick.
In addition to British cuisine and shopping stalls, CAL will offer 500 limited “fortune parcels” at a price of NT$1,499 each at the fair.
Each parcel will include a lottery ticket for prizes ranging from NT$3,000 (US$99)-worth of airline ticket coupons to two round-trip Taipei-London flight tickets, according to the company.
