China Eastern Airlines connects Taiyuan with Taiwan
China Eastern Airlines has added its 23rd cross-straits service between China and Taiwan, linking Taiyuan (TYN) with Taichung (RMQ). The SkyTeam alliance carrier already serves Taipei Taoyuan from the Chinese city. Started on 28 November, the 1,679-kilometre service will be flown twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) by the airline’s 737-800 fleet. Taiwanese carrier Far Eastern Air Transport will provide the competition, as it currently offers a twice-weekly service on the airport pair.
