China Airlines to cancel package of direct charter flights to Athens

Taipei, May 30 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL) is to cancel a package of direct charter flights to Athens between June and October, Taiwan's largest carrier said Monday.

CAL, working with six travel agencies -- Lion Travel, Cola Tour, Artisan Tour, South East Travel Service, Phoenix Tours and MITravel -- started in March to market 18 direct charter flights between June 3 and Oct. 7.

CAL said it applied for landing permission from the Greek civil aviation authorities, who agreed to issue the permission.

However, CAL said it had yet to receive the formal papers as of Monday, and therefore decided to stop sales of the charter flights immediately, to protect the interests of passengers.

Passengers who have already paid for their tickets will get full refunds or be offered the option of taking other flights to Greece, CAL said. (By Wang Shu-fen and Lilian Wu)
