China Airlines announced plans to add a new flight from Urumqi, the capital of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, to Taoyuan county, Taiwan, on June 25, which means there will now be two flights from Xinjiang to the island.

China Airlines said there will be three of the new flights a week, on an Airbus 330, which has 30 business class seats and 277 economy class seats. The current direct route, from Urumqi to Taibei, the capital of Taiwan, which takes five and half an hours, has already attracted many travelers going to Taiwan for business, to see relatives, or sightseeing.

The new flight is being added to meet the demands of an increasing number of travelers to the island.
