About TransAsia Airways

TransAsia Airways was an airline based in Taipei, Taiwan and was focused on domestic flights. The airline had its hub airport at Taipei Taoyuan International Airport and had V Air as a subsidiary budget airline. TransAsia Airways flew to many destinations including Osaka, Tokyom Okinawa, Sapporo, Jeju, Macau, Palau, Siem Reap, Taipei, Kaohsiung, Taichung, Kinmen, Hualien, Makung, Shanghai, Changsha, Xuzhou, Wuhan, Tianjin, Hefei and many others. TransAsia Airways also had codeshare agreements with Shenzhen Airlines and XiamenAir.

TransAsia Airways was established in 1951 and in 2014 ordered ATR72-600s including options for a further three and launched Taoyuan - Quanzhou and Taoyuan - Guiyang. TransAsia Airways' fleet consisted of Airbus A330-200, A321-100, A321-200, A330-300 and ATR 72-600 aircraft. Business class was offered on the Airbus A330-300 in a 2-2-2 configuration with a 160-degree recline. Economy class was available on all aircraft, in a 2-4-2 configuration on the Airbus A330-300, a 3-3 configuration on the Airbus A320-200 and Airbus A321-100, and a 2-2 configuration on the ATR series.

TransAsia had 19 aircraft in service – six Airbus A320s, five A321s and eight ATR 72s. It also had four Airbus A330s, one A321 and one A320 in storage. In 2016, TransAsia Airways had announced that it would cease operations permanently and entered into liquidation. The company continuously lost money, and its shares had been sliding since the crashes in 2014 and 2015, raising questions about the safety of its planes.
