Taiwan's leading carrier China Airlines said Monday it will boost its service from Taipei to Auckland, introducing daily flights from October in a bid to tap New Zealand's growing tourism market.

Founded in 1959, China Airlines operates a fleet of 68 aircraft and flies to 80 destinations in 28 countries.
