With the Southern California heat blasting the region with 80 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, Los Angeles is an ideal summer location to relax on the beach and enjoy a cold beverage of your choice with friends and family by your side. China Airlines announced daily service from Taipei to Ontario, California with their Boeing 777-300ER in March, but it seems the Inland Empire region airport is in for another treat.
Starting October 28, 2018, China Airlines will be using the Airbus A350-900 aircraft for the route. In addition, China Airlines has revealed that their final Airbus A350 aircraft, will have a “carbon” livery. The aircraft is expected to be delivered in October 2018.
“The new route, along with the existing Taoyuan – Los Angeles service, will expand options for travel to and from Asia for metropolitan Los Angeles as a whole, fostering closer Taiwan-U.S. ties as well as strengthening links with the Asia market. Ontario Airport’s superb location means it’s close to local Chinese communities and can attract travelers from the east side of Greater Los Angeles,” China Airlines Chairman Nuan-Hsuan Ho in a press release. “Ontario Airport is also the e-commerce hub for the US west coast so it will hopefully create new cargo sources for China Airlines, resulting in a win in passenger and freight.”
Additionally, China Airlines will be reducing the number of flights to and from Ontario between August 24, 2018 and October 24, 2018 from 7 to 5 flights per week. After October 24th, the carrier will resume with daily service.
