President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan has scheduled a visit to Miami at the end of June, according to reports.
It is Tsai’s first visit to the U.S. as president, having just taken office last month. She will also visit Los Angeles and Panama.
The reason for the stop in Miami has not been disclosed.
Tsai will fly to Miami on China Airlines’ new Boeing 777-300ER, which has the range to fly longer distances without refueling stops, the reports state. Previous presidential trips have been on 747s owned by the airline.
China Airlines is Taiwan’s flag carrier, and flies to Miami four times a week with all-cargo service. Dade Aviation has been lobbying the airline to begin passenger service.
