Taipei has become Emirates’ newest passenger destination with flight EK366 arriving in Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport inaugurating the airline’s daily non-stop service from Dubai International Airport.
“I am proud that we have been able to increase our commitment and begin daily, non-stop passengers services from today,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman, Emirates Airline & Group.
Emirates and Taipei began their partnership in 2003 when Emirates Skycargo launched freighter services from Dubai.
“Dubai and Taipei are very similar, both are important trading hubs and today’s link will help to build on bilateral trade.
“We have been working hard to promote Taipei across our network and I am confident that the influx of business and leisure passengers will continue to grow,” added Sheikh Ahmed.
Emirates’ Taipei service is operated by a 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.
In-flight passengers enjoy gourmet cuisine in all classes, served by Emirates’ multinational cabin crew of over 132 nationalities, including Taiwanese.
The aircraft also features ice, Emirates’ award-winning in-flight entertainment system which has over 1,600 channels showing the latest blockbusters, subtitled Hollywood films, music, TV and games.
