According with news agency EFE, direct flights between mainland China and Taiwan are under study... in spanish only, i will try to translate (sorry for my poor english!)

07:19 La elección de cuatro destinos para los vuelos directos con Taiwán, anunciada hoy en el rotativo taiwanés “Tiempos Comerciales” , augura el fin de las estrictas restricciones al transporte en el Estrecho de Formosa. El Partido Kuomintang, que controla el Parlamento taiwanés y asumirá la Presidencia el 20 de mayo, anunció su plan de abrir vuelos directos semanales a las ciudades chinas de Pekín, Shanghai, Cantón y Xiamen. (EFE)

"The election of four destinations for direct flights with Taiwan, announced today on "Comercial Times" newspaper, may will be the end of the strict transportation restrictions on the Formosa strait. The Kuonmintang Party, who controls taiwanese Parliament and will step up the Presidency on may 20th, announced their plan to allow direct weekely flights to the mainland China cities of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Xiamen"

Interesting developments for the very busy TPE/HKG route in the future!!

Any improvement in this area is beneficial to the business. It is a day long process getting from Taiwan to China with the stop in South Korea or someplace else to get there. I certainly understand the military concerns, but there has got to be a way to work this out.

Cheers,

Taiwan is looking to start weekend direct charter flights starting from July and airports that will have direct flights into China will increase from 2 (currently only KHH and TPE) to 7. They also propose daily charters by the end of this year and daily scheduled flights before June next year.

However, I'm not sure if China will want airlines to fly over Hong Kong first.

Yes, all flights still need to go through HK FIR. But usually nowadays, the routing is very direct from the FIR entry point (ELATO) to the mainland (BEKOL).

Granted, it can be tough to travel from Taiwan to mainland China; however, one can travel to Hong Kong, Kinmen (KNH), or Macau. This is to ensure that no Taiwanese newspapers or other publications touch Chinese soil.

Both sides need each other, and with all things in China, it is simply a matter of time. To the Chinese, "short-term" projects mean something that the current generation will see completed. "Long-term" can mean several generations. In fact, there is a joke of undetermined authenticity, that says that Deng Xiaopeng was asked his opinion of the American Revolution and its impact on the world. He replied, "it's too soon to tell".

To the Chinese, this is a family squabble that will be worked out "in time". In the meantime, just because there are disagreements in the family, that doesn't mean that business can't be done between the two countries that are mutually beneficial.

I think there's potential that CX's bottom line will be negatively impacted by this. Does anyone know what percentage of their total revenue is derived from Taiwan-China traffic?

TPE/HKG is bound to still have some Taiwan/HK business traffic, but it'll definitely become a less busy corridor.

But I think TSA would be a much more suitable airport for cross-strait flights.
