The eastern European city of Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic as well as its largest city. The Bohemian style can be seen everywhere in Prague and the city has long been known as a real-life “Fairytale City.” Prague became the first city to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its elegant historic buildings and classical air of mystery. It is also one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Prague was founded on the Vltava River and the river flows through its Castle, Lesser Town, Old Town and New Town districts. Popular destinations include the Old Town Square, St. Vitus Cathedral, Astronomical Clock, and Charles Bridge. These are all must-see sights for travelers around the world.

China Airlines has a positive outlook on post-pandemic travel recovery. The number of people traveling to Europe has been growing steadily in recent years with the eastern European market seeing the most growth. With business and travel demand both growing steadily throughout the Asia-Pacific, eastern Europe offers a market with great potential and China Airlines will continue to compete in the transfer market. China Airlines currently flies on the Taipei-Vienna route four times a week. Taipei-Prague will begin making two flights a week from July 18 onwards. Up to six flights a week to Vienna or Prague will give travelers more flexibility on their Austrian and Czech itineraries.
China Airlines has built a comprehensive network in Europe after 40 years of development. Prague will become the sixth all-new destination to be added. Existing European destinations include Frankfurt (Germany), Amsterdam (the Netherlands), London (U.K.), Rome (Italy), and Vienna (Austria). With nearly 30 European flights per week, China Airlines is the airline with the most destinations and the busiest schedule for direct flights to Europe in Taiwan. (2023/03/14)
