Taitung (TTT) to Taipei (TSA)

I spent only few hours in Taitung because I had booked return flight to capital city of the Taiwan at the same day. I choosed return flight with the Mandarin Airlines. You can read about my previous flight to Taitung with UNI AIR on this PAGE

Mandarin Airlines was established on June 1, 1991, mainly for operating direct flights from Taipei to Canada’s Vancouver, Australia’s Sydney and Brisbane in the beginning.

On August 8, 1999, Mandarin Airlines merged with Formosa Airlines, thus became an Airlines that runs regional short-haul international route and domestic route. China Airlines is its parent company and owns 93.99% shareholding. This makes Mandarin Airlines a majority-owned subsidiary of China Airlines.
