Taiwan boosts flights for China tourists

1st Feb 2007

Taiwan plans to increase the number of passenger charter flights to mainland China as the island opens to Chinese tourists, the Economic Daily News reported Thursday. Citing unnamed senior officials at the Mainland Affairs Council, the paper said additional charter flights will take place during the most popular travel times.

The paper said this means the flights will operate from noon Friday through Sunday.

Such a move would be an extension of an agreement made between China and Taiwan in June to allow nonstop charter flights during major holidays. The flights must still fly over Hong Kong’s airspace, however.
