Air China Launches Weekly Flight Between Tianjin And Taichung

Air China, the country's flag carrier, has started offering a regular weekly service between Taichung in Taiwan and Tianjin.

Tianjin becomes the 12th domestic city with direct flights to Taichung and the first city in north China with direct flights to Taichung. The direct flights between Tianjin and Taichung are expected to enhance economic and trade exchanges between central Taiwan and north China, and support the development of the entire pan-Baohai region.

Air China operates the new route with one round-trip each week, using Boeing B737-800 aircraft. CA141 will depart from Tianjin every Tuesday at 08:30 and arrive at Taichung at 11:40. The Taichung-Tianjin flight, CA142, will depart from Taichung at 12:40 and arrive at Tianjin at 16:40.

Taichung Airport will add 22 extra flights during the upcoming Spring Festival, in response to strong demand from Taiwan businessmen from the central region. With the expected opening of the Taiwan tourism market to mainland tourists this year, direct flights between Taichung and north China will significantly boost the growth of tourism in central Taiwan.
