Emirates Announces Non-Stop Dubai – Taipei Service

Emirates has announced the launch of non-stop passenger services from Dubai to Taipei, its 16th destination in the Far East. The service will commence from 10th February 2014, initially with six non-stop flights per week to Taipei’s Taoyuan International Airport.

The route will be operated by a three-class B777-300ER equipped with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class, and 304 seats in Economy Class, along with gourmet cuisine in all classes. The aircraft also features ice, Emirates’ award-winning inflight entertainment system that offers over 1,400 channels showing the latest blockbusters, subtitled Hollywood films, music, TV and games.

Taipei, home to nearly seven million people, is an economic and cultural centre with renowned sights, attractions and a myriad of shopping options. The destination is famous for producing and exporting electronics, textiles, plastics and rubber, optical and photographic instruments and chemicals.

“Emirates SkyCargo has operated a dedicated freighter service to Taipei since 2003,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President Commercial Operations East. “Given its status as a global trading hub and the demand, it is a natural progression for Emirates to launch passenger services to Taipei.

“Emirates’ home, Dubai is another world-class trading centre and this launch is a strong example of not only linking two great commercial destinations, but also promoting international travel and trade. Through Dubai, Emirates offers its international passengers a one-stop connection from Taipei to 70 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Europe.”

Emirates now operates services to 134 destinations in 76 countries from Dubai, including Dublin.
