Mainland China and Taiwan announced an increase in the number of direct charter flights across the Taiwan Strait Wednesday. Holiday passenger, cargo, medical and humanitarian charters could possibly start within weeks, with regular, full charter services to be launched in four to five months.

Charter flights will still need to fly over Hong Kong airspace.
