On the Chiang Mai route, V Air will operate seven flights in January, 11 in February and 11 in March, before settling to a frequency of four weekly flights from April onwards.
Services will depart Taoyuan at 1600, arriving in northern Thailand at 1900. The return flights will leave at 2000, getting back into Taipei at 0040.
