Taiwan Carriers Flying To China For New Year

Sun Jan 05, 2003 12:06 am

Far Eastern Air Transport and EVA Air are seeking to fly to China direct to carry passengers to and from Taipei for the lunar new year. FAT have been granted permission but EVA plan on flying indirect using an empty 744 to Shanghai and then flying full to Taipei.

According to the BBC, the flights to China still wont be nonstop as per this new exception, but rather just allow the ROC carrier into PRC. PRC has yet to grant a nonstop allowance for any of the ROC carriers... though EVA is applying

FAT has become the first airline to receive the approval from China.

FAT will be using 178-seater B757-200 for Taipei-Macau-Shanghai flight.

It's a big step for both countries' air travel. Hopefully it will lead to direct air links between the two countries one day...and eventual peace. A lot of Chinese want to go visit their families in Taiwan for the Chinese New Year. It's a big deal event.

Its good news at last (Hopefully)

Its really an inconvenience having to route differently when trying to travel there through Taiwan
