The Mainland and Taiwan are expected to begin scheduled flights as early as next month.
A total of nine Mainland carriers will share among them 135 round-trip flights a week to the island.
Meanwhile, five Taiwanese airlines will operate 135 regular flights weekly connecting four local cities with 19 mainland destinations. Which gives us 270 flights in all.
The arrangements, pending final approval of the authorities on both sides, are expected to take effect next month.
The Standard reported the two sides, which held landmark talks last year that led to the first direct charter flights across the Taiwan Strait, agreed to increase the number of flights to 270 a week and upgrade them to scheduled flights.
