DUBAI, U.A.E., 27th August 2013 Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, today announced the launch of non-stop passenger services to Taipei, its 16th destination in the Far East.

The service will commence from 10th February 2014, initially with six non-stop flights per week to Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport.

The route will be operated by a three class Boeing 777-300ER equipped with eight luxurious private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and generous space for 304 passengers in Economy Class, along with gourmet cuisine in all classes - served by Emirates’ multinational cabin crew.


The aircraft also features ice Emirates' award-winning inflight entertainment system which offers up to 1,500 channels showing the latest blockbusters, subtitled Hollywood films, music, TV and games.

Taipei, home to nearly seven million people, is an economic and cultural centre with renowned sights, attractions and a myriad of shopping options. The destination is famous for producing and exporting electronics, textiles, plastics and rubber, optical and photographic instruments and chemicals.

“Emirates SkyCargo has operated a dedicated freighter service to Taipei since 2003. Given its status as a global trading hub and the demand, it is a natural progression for Emirates to launch passenger services to Taipei,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations East.

“Emirates’ home, Dubai is another world-class trading centre and this launch is a strong example of not only linking two great commercial destinations, but also promoting international travel and trade. Through Dubai, Emirates offers its international passengers a one-stop connection from Taipei to 70 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

“We are confident that this new route will open up new trade opportunities across the Emirates network as well as support business and tourism travel to Taipei,” concluded Mr Brown.
