Starting on December 1, China Airlines will operate three round-trip flights each week from Taoyuan International Airport to Delhi and Rome.

China Airlines not only provides Italian-speaking cabin crew, but has also recruited more flight attendants from India, to provide better service. India’s economy has grown rapidly in recent years, and the country has a fascinating culture, while Rome remains a renowned historical city famous for its leisure and business travel. The link between Delhi and Rome is expected to provide great commercial benefit, as well as enhancing CAL’s extensive international network through its Taoyuan airport hub.
