Within the next few years battery powered air-taxis will be available for trips up to 25 miles between vertiports for one or possibly two passengers. How far beyond this distance and payload can safely be flown will depend on battery life.  When I mentioned these limitations during the recent SAE Aerotech Conference, a member of the audience asked, “why not use a bigger battery”. The answer is that as all-up weight (AUW) increases, the energy required from the propulsion system increases much faster. Energy from batteries is so low that adding a larger battery could actually reduce the payload. This will limit air-taxing to short low payload flights between the tops of commercial buildings.

China Airlines Increases Non-Stop Route Flight Frequency LGW-TPE

China Airlines is increasing its non-stop route from London Gatwick to Taipei from four to five flights per week. The national flag carrier of the Republic of China (Taiwan) will add a fifth flight from 25 March 2018 onwards, with the additional service operating every Tuesday.

The increase follows the announcement that China Airlines is returning to the UK after a five year hiatus with the launch of a new non-stop service between London Gatwick and Taipei’s Taoyuan International on Friday 1 December 2017.

The new service will operate four times per week from Gatwick’s South Terminal until 25 March 2018, when the additional Tuesday flight will be added. The A350-900 Airbus will carry up to 306 passengers with a three class configuration, offering Premium Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.

“Having only just announced our return to the UK, we are already demonstrating our ambition and commitment to the service by expanding from four to five weekly flights,” says Roger Han, Senior Vice President, Europe at China Airlines.

“This addition to the only non-stop service between Taiwan and the UK will allow even more travellers to experience China Airlines’ impressive 4-star inflight service. Customers will be able to travel more frequently with the knowledge that our network is opening up many routes into Australia, New Zealand and Asia.”

As a proud member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance, China Airlines currently operate flights to destinations across Asia, North America, Europe and Australia, with a fleet of over 80 aircraft.

As of 25 March, the new flight schedule will operate as per the following local times:
