About China Airlines

What can travelers expect from China Airlines? Headquartered at Taoyuan International Airport near Taipei, China Airlines is Taiwan’s largest full-service airline and one of Asia’s leading carriers. CAL is also the only airline to provide direct flights between Taiwan and the United States with first-class cabin service. A member of SkyTeam since 2011, CAL is proud to offer one of the most exquisite services combining the elegance of Chinese culture with advanced modern comfort.

What makes China Airlines’ business class unique? In October 2012, China Airlines completed an upgrade program of nine Boeing 747-400 aircraft with all-new cabins. Passengers in retrofitted business class can enjoy not only attentive service provided by our excellent air crew but also new facilities including ergonomic seats, an advanced video system with more than 101 movies and entertainment programs, and expanded personal space free from disturbance.

China Airlines cooperates with leading restaurants and culinary artists such as W Hotels to design the signature dishes and light bites for business travelers. As an active supporter of eco-friendly service, we use mostly local ingredients in our in-flight meals to reduce CO2 emissions. On certain routes like Taipei–Frankfurt, in-flight delicacies are even labeled with caloric content, which allows passengers to be health conscious while enjoying the journey.

What are China Airlines’ future plans in North America? China Airlines has been deepening its presence in the U.S. market for years. We will continue to collaborate with another SkyTeam member, Delta Air Lines, through codeshare to meet travelers’ demands for more transit options to inland U.S. cities.

One of our priority missions is to streamline our fleet and upgrade service quality. CAL has ordered 10 Boeing 777-300ER planes and will fly the first of these aircraft to U.S. destinations starting in 2014. With pleasant brand-new features, traveling on China Airlines will no longer be mere flying but will be a customized, relaxing entertainment experience in the skies.

After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
