More flights from China to Taiwan

TAIPEI/BEIJING: Imparting renewed momentum to warming cross-straits relations, China has cleared the way for more flights between it and Taiwan that is set to increase travel and people-to-people contacts.

China has agreed to let 14 more Chinese cities fly direct regular or charter flights to Taiwan, said Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration Jan 21.

Since the cross-strait rapprochement started between China and the self-ruled island, which calls itself the Republic of China, there has been a dramatic upswing in popular contacts between the two sides. Taiwan has now 558 weekly flights with China.
