China Airlines are now using their newest, state of the art Airbus 350 aircraft on their Taipei-Vienna route. The airline currently runs three weekly flights to the Austrian capital and follows closely the company’s decision to do exactly the same by improving their Taipei-Amsterdam route.
The Chinese airline bought their first ever A350 back in September and have already increased this to four aircraft, with an ambition of adding another 10 in the near future.
The Airbus A350 XWB is a family of long-range, twin-engine wide-body jet airliners developed by European aircraft manufacturer Airbus. The A350 is the first Airbus aircraft with both fuselage and wing structures made primarily of carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer. Its variants seat 280 to 366 passengers in typical three-class seating layouts. The A350 is positioned to succeed the A340, and compete with the Boeing 787 and 777.
