Starting Aug. 29, three new direct cross-strait flights to Wuxi, Sanya, and Yancheng will be in operation, with return-tickets mostly priced below NT$10,000 before tax.


By October, new routes to Wenzhou, Chongqing, Xi’an, Harbin, and other destinations will be available. Both China Airlines and TransAsia Airways will offer the new direct-flights on Aug 29.

As a special promotion, China Airlines tickets for the first 14 days will be priced at NT$8,200 not including tax. TransAsia Airways’ lowest fares will start at NT$7,888, rising up to NT$8,888 by the end of September.

On Sept. 7, EVA Air will also offer a Taoyuan to Yancheng route. By October, additional routes to Haikou, Xi’an, Shenyang, Harbin, Kunming and Guilin will also be operational. In addition, TransAsia Airways will offer with Shenzhen Airlines six Taoyuan to Wuxi direct-flights per week.

The local travel industry estimated that with new destinations, all second-tier cities in China, will experience a surge in tourism. Direct flights to tourist attractions are great incentives for travelers. The future will usher in more diverse travel options, exposing local travelers to the diverse range of attractions in China.

Some travel agencies have already taken advantage of the direct Wuxi flights, with five-day vacation packages under NT$10,000.

China Airlines said Wuxi, as an important industrial city in Jiangsu, is also a prime tourist destination. In cooperation with China Eastern Airlines, there will be eight Taoyuan to Wuxi direct flights a week. By Sept. 6, the Taoyuan to Sanya route, operating two times a week, will kick off; for the first 14 days, tickets are priced at NT$9,800 before tax, the airline added.

In addition, Mandarin Airlines’ Taoyuan to Yancheng route is set to kick off on Sept. 7; again, air fare for the first two weeks is NT$9,700. Adding to the popular direct to Beijing flights is China Airlines’ Kaohsiung to Beijing route, which will start Sept. 9 at NT$10,100 before tax. By October, which marks the start of the winter travel season, China Airlines will roll out direct flights to Wenzhou, Haikou, Chongqing, Dalian, Nanchang, and other destinations, conveniently connecting tourists to the lesser-known attractions of the vast and largely unexplored country.
