Char­ter flights launched be­tween Taitung and HK

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Char­ter flight ser­vices be­tween south­east­ern Tai­wan’s Taitung and Hong Kong were launched Satur­day to pro­vide more con­ve­nient air traf­fic be­tween both sides dur­ing the peak sum­mer travel pe­riod.

The flights, op­er­ated by China Air­lines, first brought 104 visi­tors from Hong Kong to Taitung and car­ried 87 pas­sen­gers on the re­turn di­rec­tion.

The 85-minute flight could be an ideal travel op­tion be­cause in­stead of us­ing the Kaoh­si­ung In­ter­na­tional Air­port in south­ern Tai­wan, tourists can take ad­van­tage of the new air link to save at least two hours of ground travel time, ac­cord­ing to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment.

The flights, which can carry 104 pas­sen­gers at full ca­pac­ity, will run ev­ery Wed­nes­day and Satur­day through Aug. 29, of­fi­cials said.
