The China Airlines A350 will make an appearance on Taipei-Brisbane-Auckland flights from March 2018 – and we’ve found wide availability on one-way trans-Tasman business class fares from just $425!
China Airlines highly regarded A350 aircraft replaces existing A330-300 aircraft on the route. The three cabin classes offered are Premium Business (32 seats), Premium Economy (31 seats), and Economy (243 seats). The 32 fully lie-flat business class seats are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration and the cabin sports luxurious finishes.
With the discontinuation of Emirates A380 flights on the Brisbane-Auckland and Melbourne-Auckland routes from early March, Brisbane-based flyers are set to benefit from this new premium offering. The exceptional Emirates A380 first class product is still currently available to fly on the trans-Tasman Sydney-Christchurch route. However, come March, we’re tipping that China Airlines A350 business class may be the most luxurious option for trans-Tasman flights to Auckland!
Right now, you can book a business class seat on the Brisbane-Auckland fifth freedom route for just $425 one way (originating from Auckland) or just $451 one way (originating from Brisbane). We’ve found wide-open availability for these fares across the entire year (up to and including late November).
Whether you’re based in Brisbane or positioning from another city, these fares represent excellent value – particularly given that the booking periods include peak travel times such as Easter and school holidays.
Personally, I’m very keen to try this new product and will be booking a trip later on in the year.
Will you consider the China Airlines A350 for your next trans-Tasman trip?
