China Airlines will add a new connection in Eastern Europe with the addition of Prague to its network.

The Taipei-based airline announced it will launch its new route from Taipei-Taoyuan to Prague – the capital of the Czech Republic – from July 18. Using Airbus A350 aircraft, China Airlines will operate two weekly flights on the route.

China Airlines will offer the only direct flights between Taiwan and the Czech Republic.

“China Airlines has a positive outlook on post-pandemic travel recovery. The number of people traveling to Europe has been growing steadily in recent years with the eastern European market seeing the most growth. With business and travel demand both growing steadily throughout the Asia-Pacific, eastern Europe offers a market with great potential and China Airlines will continue to compete in the transfer market,” the airline said in a statement.

Prague will be the 6th new destination in Europe on China Airlines' network in the region. The airline operates a total of 30 weekly flights to five cities in the region including Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Rome, and Vienna.
