Asiana Airlines Taipei-Delhi Route?

Wed Feb 19, 2003 10:02 am

Justplanes.com is reporting that Asiana Airlines is planning to increase flights from Taipei to Delhi. From what I know of OZ only flies daily DEL-ICN flights with 763 aircraft and is doing very good on the route.

Is this a typing error or is OZ really planning Taipei-Delhi flights?

Its justplanes.com, so take it with a pinch of salt.

I posted here some weeks ago about a planned increase in DEL-ICN services by Asiana due to the new bilateral between India and Korea.

I don't think Asiana could really fly Taipei-Delhi. I mean, they don't even operate regular scheduled flights to Taipei. Unless Taiwan and Korea work out some agreement, I doubt it will happen.

Are they flying via SIN to DEL when they increase the frequency?

"I don't think Asiana could really fly Taipei-Delhi. I mean, they don't even operate regular scheduled flights to Taipei. Unless Taiwan and Korea work out some agreement, I doubt it will happen."

My OAG shows them operating a B734 4x weekly from ICN to TPE as flight OZ3115. Also, there are several flights through TPE to other destinations:
SQ operate SIN to NRT via TPE. TG operates BKK to ICN through TPE. CX also operates a HKG-NRT flight through TPE. So, it wouldn't be all that unusual, particularly as CI only operates TPE-DEL 3x weekly. Maybe they want to co-ordinate their flights to operate a daily flight on that route? That wouldn't be so unusual either.

Asiana, Korean, and China all fly TPE-ICN, but the flights are chartered flights.

I think CX and TG fly TPE-ICN as scheduled flights only because they don't have any ties with the Korean or Taiwanese governments.

From what I remember, Korea and Taiwan haven't established bilateral air agreements. So TPE-ICN can't be regularly scheduled flights by any Korean or Taiwanese airlines.

Snoopy is correct; Apollo CRS also shows Asiana operating a 734 TPE-ICN. It will go to a 321 in March.

No. Alexchao is correct. OZ flights to TPE are not scheduled flights. They are charter flights operating on a regular schedule. These flights are usually prelude to signing an air services agreement with Taiwan.
