This summer, Taiwan-based carrier China Airlines will resume flights to Chiang Mai, Thailand after a nearly six year hiatus.
Starting June 23, China Airlines will launch its four-times weekly service between Taipei-Taoyuan to Chiang Mai using their 158-seat Boeing 737-800s on the route. The airline initially suspended the route in October of 2013.
Along with Chiang Mai, the airline is expanding its presence in southeast Asia with flights to Cebu in the Philippines in March.
China Airlines will compete with daily services operated by both fellow Taiwanese-based carrier EVA Air and Thai AirAsia.
