China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The Chi­nese main­land and Tai­wan have agreed to ar­range more flights across the Straits dur­ing the com­ing Spring Fes­ti­val to en­sure peo­ple on both sides can re­turn home for fam­ily reunions dur­ing the Chi­nese New Year.

Ma Xiaoguang, spokesman for the Tai­wan Af­fairs Of­fice of the State Coun­cil, said at a reg­u­lar news con­fer­ence on Wed­nes­day that as Tai­wan’s po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion has changed this year, rel­e­vant de­part­ments from both sides of the Straits did not hold reg­u­lar com­mu­ni­ca­tion meet­ings to re­in­force co­op­er­a­tion of civil avi­a­tion trans­port.

“How­ever, con­sid­er­ing peo­ple’s need to make hol­i­day ar­range­ments and their wishes to re­turn home for the hol­i­day, civil avi­a­tion de­part­ments have ar­ranged more flights dur­ing the Spring Fes­ti­val through the ex­change of let­ters,” he said.
