China Airlines (CI) is delighted to announce our seasonal Melbourne – Taipei vice versa and Melbourne – Christchurch vice versa service during the period of 26 October 2015 – 26 March 2016. All flights will be operated by modern A330-300s with seat-back TV offering a wide range of entertainment options.
