EVA Airways has become the big winner for the latest round of Taiwan-Japan Air Traffic agreement. The agreement was revised followed by Japanese Government asking EVA Airways and China Airlines to move their operations in Tokyo from Haneda to Narita. Taiwanese airline has been approved to increase the flight to Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka. The additional flight has been rewarded by EVA.

EVA's 2002 summer flight to Japan highlights:

Osaka: 4x a week to 7x (looks like EVA has cut back flights to KIX after 9.11)
Fukuoka: 5x to 7x (This has been approved earlier and started already)
Tokyo: 2x a week to 21x weekly, due to CI has 21x flight already. 7 out of 21x are code-sharing with ANA.

Meanwhile, China Airlines has decided to provided free bus service between Downtown Tokyo and Narita Airport while adding 1x flight to Narita. CI will provide 22x weekly flight to Tokyo from Apr 18.
