What Is The Flight Path From Taiwan To Europe?

What are flight paths on flights with Taiwanese carriers going to Europe? Does China let them fly over China?

Thanks, but I didn't know that China let Taiwanese carriers fly over China. I know the two countries are not on good terms with each other.

Airlines from Taiwan flying to Europe do it with a stopover in SE Asia, usually BKK, thus avoiding the mainland's airspace altogether.

No, China does not allow Taiwanese carriers over the mainland.

Usually, flights stop in BKK or DXB. However, EVA Air recently started TPE-CDG nonstop. The route goes north via Russia.
