China Airlines Announces Seattle Flights

China Airlines has announced it'll launch nonstop flights towards Seattle with its Airbus A350-900 as it boosts U.S. services.

China Airlines has announced plans to expand its international network, focusing on service to the United States.

The carrier has revealed that from July 14, 2024, service towards Seattle from Taipei will launch and thus expand its presence within the United States.

When service commences, the airline says it’ll offer enhanced options for travel between the USA and Asia with its aircraft as demand continues to grow quicker than expected.

The Airbus A350-900 will operate on the route, and China Airlines will initially offer five weekly flights.

Route Specifics

China Airlines says the outbound flight will act as CI022, with service departing every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2330. The aircraft will land in Seattle in 1950 after 11 hours of flying due to the time difference.

Meanwhile, the return leg will take 13 hours of flying. It will depart Seattle as CI021 at 0140 after a multi-hour layover and touchdown in Taiwain at 0505 the following morning. These times are relevant to their respective time zones.

China Airlines adds that the route is still subject to regulatory approval, especially the schedule, but expects this to be confirmed at some point in the future.

A Growing Market

China Airlines says that the U.S. and Taiwan markets continue growing, and strong demand is present. With more than 50 million travellers moving through Seattle, China Airlines believes it can provide a vital travel option without the need to travel to other U.S. locations.

Additionally, thanks to interline ticketing, it is possible through 50 other population locations within the United States, which means those coming from Taiwain or broader Asia will have an easy connection.
