Citylife – Yesterday, one of Taiwan’s international airlines TransAsia announced that it is to launch scheduled flights to Chiang Mai this July in order to exploit a heightened demand for travel between the two Asian destinations during the summer vacation season.

From the beginning of July this year, TransAsia will launch twice-weekly flights between Taiwan’s capital Taipei and Thailand’s so-called capital of the North, Chiang Mai. These round flights – using A321-131 aircrafts – will take place on Wednesdays and Sundays, TransAsia said.

Although the airline has been flying to Chiang Mai since 2010, it is stepping up its game now that the old capital of the Lanna kingdom has become a real favourite amongst Taiwanese vacationers. This follows the implementation of regular flights between Taipei and Bangkok this March.
