Air China Launches Direct Flights from Four Mainland Cities to Taipei

BEIJING, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire-Asia-AsiaNet/ --

                  Tianjin, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing 

                     Now Offer Direct Flights to Taipei

    From December 15th 2008, Air China will fly passengers from four cities in

Mainland China; Tianjin, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing, to Taipei directly. 

They will join Beijing and Shanghai, who have offered direct flights to Taipei

since July 2008. 

    After a historic agreement was signed between officials from Mainland China

and Taiwan, from December 15th 2008 to March 28th 2009, Air China will offer

passengers two direct flights from Beijing, and four direct flights from

Shanghai, on week days, every week, to Taipei.  Furthermore, every week, over the

weekend, there will be several direct flights to Taipei from Beijing and

Shanghai, as well as from Tianjin, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing.  All these

flights will be direct to Taipei and will not fly via Hong Kong, or detour over

Hong Kong airspace.  This will allow Chinese travelers from both sides of the

Straits to travel more conveniently, and quickly, between the Mainland and


    These routes will open up business, cultural and travel opportunities between

the cities in the Mainland, and Taipei, and in order to illustrate the closer

ties between the two regions, Air China will deploy its newly patterned planes,

which celebrate this momentous occasion. 

    Under its service philosophy of the four Cs: Credibility, Convenience,

Comfort, and Choice, Air China will also be offering its passengers from Taiwan a

convenient gateway to connect with flights from Beijing to other cities and

countries across the globe.
