Tigerair Taiwan Adds Zhangjiajie, Tokyo (Haneda) Flights

Tigerair Taiwan, the low-cost carrier joint venture between China Airlines and Singapore’s Tiger Airways Holdings, has added Zhangjiajie and Tokyo (Haneda) to its fast-growing network.


Taipei (Taoyuan) – Zhangjiajie

The Taipei-based airline flew its inaugural cross-strait service earlier this month on 12 December, when flight IT 109 landed at Zhangjiajie Huhua Airport in central China’s Hunan province. A gateway to the UNESCO-listed Wulingyuan Scenic Area, the destination served as the inspiration for the fictional world of Pandora in the Hollywood movie ‘Avatar’.


Operated twice a week, flight IT 109 departs Taipei (Taoyuan) at 0635 hrs every Wednesday and Saturday, landing at Hehua Airport at 0905 hrs. The return flight, IT 110, takes off at 1135 hrs (Wednesday) / 1010 hrs (Saturday) to arrive back in Taipei at 1415 hrs (Wednesday) / 1250 hrs (Saturday).


Taipei (Taoyuan) – Tokyo (Haneda)

In response to healthy demand for flights between Taipei and Tokyo, Tigerair Taiwan has expanded operations to the Japanese capital with a new Tokyo (Haneda) service.


Flight IT 216 departs Taipei (Taoyuan) at 2350 hrs every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, arriving at Tokyo (Haneda) the next morning at 0400 hrs. The aircraft turns around to operate return flight IT 217, taking off from Japan at 0500 hrs and landing back at Taoyuan International Airport at 0750 hrs in-time for an early start in Taipei.


Both flights will be operated with Tigerair Taiwan’s 180-seat, all-economy Airbus A320 aircraft. Zhangjiajie becomes Tigerair Taiwan’s eighth international destination, following Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Macau, Naha, Osaka, Singapore and Tokyo Narita. For 2016, the airline plans to further grow in Japan with services to Fukuoka and Nagoya.
