China-Taiwan freighter services grow

03 / 06 / 2010

MAINLAND China and Taiwan have agreed to increase the number of weekly freighter flights between the two countries from 28 to 48.

Not only this but under the agreement extends the accepted destinations for Taiwanese flights from the current Shanghai Pudong and Guangzhou mainland airports to include Nanjing, Xiamen, Fuzhou and Chongqing.

Passenger flights will be allowed to increase from 270 to 370 weekly, also increasing routes to include Taoyuan International-Shijiazhuang City and Songshan Airport-Hongqiao.

Direct freighter flights have only recently been allowed between the two countries for political reasons.
