China Airlines Return To London Gatwick

China Airlines are returning to London Gatwick after a break of five years the airline has confirmed today.  

Flights will resume between Gatwick and Taipei from the 1st December and China Airlines promise onward connections to Australia and beyond. 

The non-stop flights will be operated by a brand new state-of-the-art Airbus A350 configured for 306 passengers spread over three classes. “We’re incredibly excited to be returning to the UK this year, making travel between the UK and Taiwan that much more simple and accessible,” says Roger Han, China Airlines’ senior vice president Europe. “By offering the only non-stop service between these two countries, we hope to welcome travellers who may not have considered Taiwan as their first outbound destination previously. Furthermore, our route network offers a wonderful array of destinations throughout Asia or onward to Australia for British travellers to enjoy.”

The schedule for the new link will see the technologically advanced jet depart Taipei at 0930 on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday landing at Gatwick at 1530. Whilst a Friday flight will depart Taipei at the slightly earlier time of 0855 and arrive around 1455.

On the way back, flights are scheduled to depart Gatwick at 21.15, landing back in Taiwan at 1830 local time the following day.
