Eva Airways, Taiwan’s second-biggest airline, has announced it will start daily direct flights to the mainland next month amid warming ties.
The move, part of an expanded flight agreement across the Taiwan Straits, would allow Eva Airways to fly to the cities of Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shenzhen.
The increased flights come after top officials from Taiwan and the
mainland signed deals earlier this month on daily direct flights,
new cargo routes and food safety during Beijing’s highest-level
visit in 60 years.
Eva signed an agreement with China Eastern Airlines in June to work more closely on ticketing and baggage handling issues.
All flights between Taiwan and China previously had to go through a third city, usually Hong Kong.
