In brief: China Airlines is increasing its Sydney-Taipei flights from four to five every week, making its flights more appealing for business travellers -- especially with a New York JFK connection from Taipei.
The Taiwan-based airline launched connecting flights from Taipei to New York in April, with an intermediate stop at Osaka's Kansai international airport in Japan.
While the flights aren't yet daily -- and therefore run the risk of receiving a "sorry, we don't have a flight on the day you want" answer -- it's encouraging that the airline is ramping up its schedule. The additional flights start 30 October this year.
From that date, flights will leave Sydney at 2200 Monday-Thursday and Saturday, arriving in Taipei at 0415 the next day.
Return flights leave Taipei at 2355 Monday-Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and arrive in Sydney at 1215 the following day.
Flights will be on the airline's Airbus A330-300 aircraft, with business and economy class cabins.
China Airlines is a member of the SkyTeam alliance, which includes US airline Delta, Korean Air, Vietnam Airlines, Air France-KLM and mainland Chinese airlines China Eastern and China Southern.
