Why is it that Northwest and United can fly both to the Republic of China (Taiwan) and to the People's Republic of China (mainland China) when European carriers have been required to set up subsidiaries, British Airways Asia, KLM Asia, Swissair Asia, etc., to handle the Taiwan flights for the main airline to retain traffic rights into mainland China?

Curiously,
Lars

It depends on whether or not the carriers are perceived as being "flag carriers". To a certain extent, the Asian subsidiaries of various airlines such as KLM are a vestige of the days when major European airlines were government owned and operated, which created political problems when they wanted to fly to both countries. It doesn't seem to be that big of an issue any more - carriers such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thai, and Air Canada all fly to "both" Chinas without much of a problem, despite the fact that several of them are government owned.

Oops I'm sorry. I apologize I've mixed up Manila and Taipeh.

Lufthansa did have flights to Taipeh but they were operated by a B747-400 in Condor colors to please the mainland Chinese.

American will be using China Eastern's route authority to fly to China sometime in the future and they started service to Taipei not too long ago.

could anyone share with me which european airlines currently serve taiwan?????
i know that there are british asia, swissair asia and klm asia, and i believe once, perhaps still today, there was air france asie (saw an a340 painted with asie on the fuselage in CCS in ´95), so i take it they currently serve taiwan???
LH has dropped its TPE flights quite some time ago, but i don´t know about the others. if anyone could share some info with me, i´d highly appreciate that...

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.
