Flights Between Taiwan and Mainland Now Daily

Ming Pao Daily; Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Dec 16, 2008

SAN FRANCISCO Mainland China and Taiwan last Sunday launched daily flights, direct mail and sea transportation services between the two ends of the Taiwan Straight. The Ming Pao Daily reports that before the newly launched services, there were only 36 flights connecting the mainland and Taiwan, and they were scheduled only on weekends. Now, there are 108 daily flights per week. The Taiwan Department of Transportation expects that the number of tourists from the mainland will double from 300 to 600 every day. According to the Sing Tao Daily, Taiwan President Ying-jeou Ma said at Gaoxiong Port, where the first steamboat was going to mainland on Sunday, that the two sides of the Taiwan Straight no longer opposed to each other, and that will boost Taiwan's ability to compete in the world market.
