China Airlines to increase services to Brisbane

01 Dec 2022

Taipei to Brisbane is the seventh inbound service backed by the Attracting Aviation Investment Fund (AAIF).

The Queensland Government and industry’s $200 million Attracting Aviation Investment Fund has landed its next deal with China Airlines to increase its existing Taipei to Brisbane service from three flights a week to five from January 2023.

Brisbane Airport’s Executive General Manager of Aviation Ryan Both said China Airlines was a high-quality carrier with a significant worldwide network, including key Asia markets such as Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and its home Taiwan.

From 1 January 2023, China Airlines will operate a 306-seat Airbus A350-900 from Taipei arriving into Brisbane on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Our AAIF is predicted to land up to 5.3 million inbound airline seats a year, generating almost $4 billion and hundreds of good Queensland jobs.

Each outbound flight will deliver up to 15 tonnes of Queensland cargo capacity, with chilled meat currently the number one export to Taiwan, in a boost for regional Queensland.
