While Japan and Taiwan have had essentially an openskies agreement in place since 2011, the agreement had excluded Tokyo.
Per the Taiwan CAA, Japan has now decided to lift the current 130-weekly flight frequency restriction with immediate effect for the IATA S13 schedule period.
With the lifting of flight limitations on Tokyo, it is believed the door will open for lower prices and entry of new low-cost carriers.
TransAsia Airways and AirAsia Japan are reportedly planning to launch a new flight service between Taipei and Tokyo, while Singapore's Scoot is said to be planning to increase its own single daily flight.

Quoting bobloblaw (Reply 4): Clearly the PRC doesn't care if an airline serves ROC
They only care if it's the flag carrier from a given country. British Airways needed British Airways Asia planes to fly there but Virgin would not need to do anything similar if they were to start Taiwan flights. There's no US flag carrier, hence no Delta Asia.
Why do Aerospace Engineering students have to turn things in on time?
I had asked this question about KLM Asia before on this website and the answer I got was to facilitate KLM to fly over China airspace, which is stupid to believe. EVA AIR or CHINA AIRLINES regularly overfly PRC airspace and I was over Guangxi on my way back from Paris on an EVA AIR flight.
I think it is tax reason for KLM and given how good the Dutch are with numbers, there must be some advantage that we do not know of!

? What does that have to do with anything? Air Asia and JetStar are airline groups with international subsidiaries; there is JetStar Hong Kong, JetStar Japan just as there is Indonesia and Thai Air Asia as well as Air Asia Philippines, Japan and India. Not all Asian countries have open sky agreements which would prohibit Air Asia (Malaysia) to fly domestic within Japan. That's why they found affiliates/subdiaries in partnership with local investors (ANA in Japan).
