China Airlines is the flag carrier of the Republic of China (commonly known as Taiwan). The airline is based at its main hub in Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, the major international gateway to the island. China Airlines’ main competitor is the privately owned EVA Airways. Both carriers focus on international routes rather than the domestic market, which has been impacted by the introduction of a high-speed rail service connecting the north and south of the island. Despite extensive land based transport infrastructure and the small size of the island there are five carriers serving the Taiwanese domestic market, two of which (Mandarin Airlines and Uni Air) are subsidiaries of the international airlines.
