Korean Air will resume flights between Seoul and Taipei after 10 years of hiatus.
The 3x weekly flights will be a charter programme that runs to Feb 2003.
Korean and Taiwanese carriers dropped flights between the 2 countries because the 2's political relationship is axed, and South Korea's rudeness to Taiwan politically, forcing Taiwan to suspend all flights between Taiwan and Korea (excluding foreign carriers).

Yeah, last year I wanted to fly ICN-TPE and as far as I remember only TG, SQ and CX offered non-stop flights. That's why I decided to fly: ICN-HKG with Korean 773 and than HKG-TPE with China Airlines 747-200 (!).

Hmmm...I wonder if Mainland China's political pressure will force KE to create a "Korean Asia Airways" to serve TPE. JL, BA, AF, KL and the like have subsidiaries formed for this purpose, I wonder if KE will do the same?
