- On 6 April, China Airlines’ subsidiary Mandarin Airlines launched a new route connecting Taichung (RMQ) in Taiwan with Seoul Incheon (ICN), making the South Korean capital the airline’s first destination in the country. The 1,600-kilometre service is offered with four-weekly frequencies and is operated with 104-seat E-190 aircraft. No other airline has served the route before. It is the second new route launched by Mandarin Airlines at the start of this summer season, following the service from Taipei Songshan to Wenzhou, which commenced on 25 March.
