Taipei, Sept. 22 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan's largest carrier, will hold a "Fly U.K. Now!" British day fair at the Huashan 1914 Creative Park in Taipei Saturday in celebration of its resumption of Taipei-London direct flight services.

Visitors will be able to see a circus performance and a free outdoor cinema screening at the fair, which will run from 2 p.m.-8 p.m., the company said.

According to CAL, the British day fair will be themed on London's Hyde Park, so that visitors can get a taste of how some London residents spend their leisure time.

CAL will operate four direct flights to London every week, starting from Dec. 1 this year. CAL direct flights between Taipei and London Heathrow were opened in March 2011, but were suspended one year later.

The destination airport this time will be Gatwick.

In addition to British cuisine and shopping stalls, CAL will offer 500 limited "fortune parcels" at a price of NT$1,499 each at the fair.

Each parcel will include a lottery ticket for prizes ranging from NT$3,000 (US$99)-worth of airline ticket coupons to two round-trip Taipei-London flight tickets, according to the company.
