China Airlines will resume the flights to help travelers flying between the two cities have a direct route between the two important financial cities.

Flights to London Gatwick

Apart from the new flight to LHR, before the Coronavirus crisis, the airline was operating four weekly Taipei-London flights using Gatwick Airport.

Of these four flights, CI decided to convert 3 of them to cargo flights only in response to the large drop in the number of passengers.

Moreover, The Taipei-London flights will temporarily use LHR rather than Gatwick during the period between June 19 and Oct. 24 because most of Gatwick will be closed for refurbishment, the airline said.
