Taiwan's China Airlines Opens Abu Dhabi Service

This is a good sign of the improvement of the relationship between Taiwan and United Arab Emirates. However, China Airlines should change its name to Taiwan Airline as soon as possible in order not to confuse the passengers.

Taipei, April 25 By Elisa Kao, CNA

China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan's major air carrier, added a new stopover in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to its Taipei-Vienna route Tuesday.

Foreign Minister Huang Chih-fang, Minister of Transportaton and Communications Kuo Yao-chi and several other high-ranking officials boarded the plane to mark the opening of the service.

A CAL official said the opening of the Abu Dhabi service will be a great convenience to those from Taiwan or Europe who often travel to the Middle East for business, and will help explore other potential tourists to the region.

CAL once operated services to Abu Dhabi in its Taipei-Rome route during the period from 1995 to 2004.

Last October, then Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Ling-san signed a memorandum of understanding with the UAE for the resumption of its service to Abu Dhabi.

CAL will operate three flights on the Taipei-Abu Dhabi-Vienna route per week. With the new Abu Dhabi stopover, the arrival time from Taipei to Vienna will be one hour later than the original Taipei-Vienna flight, the official added.

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. I’ll give you a link on your web blog. I recently came to know about http://www.ttegulf.com/, their Abu Dhabi Pro Services are very effective.
Abu Dhabi Pro Services Thanks for sharing.
