Mandarin Airlines, a subsidiary of Taiwan’s largest carrier China Airlines (CAL), has launched direct flights between Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan and Xiamen in China’s Fujian Province.
The weekly flight will link Taiwan’s second most important business city and port with a region that has heavy Taiwanese investment, especially in two specially allocated business parks, the Xiamen Haicang Taiwanese Investment Zone and the Xinglin Taiwan Merchants Development Zone.
Mandarin’s new route comes on the heels of its parent airline’s inauguration of direct flights between Taipei’s Songshan Airport and Shanghai’s Hongqiao Airport on June 14.
CAL said it plans to increase the number of flights to Beijing, Guangzhou and Shenzhen due to rising demand for cross-Taiwan Strait air links.
Currently CAL and Mandarin Airlines provide 61 direct flights to 14 destinations in mainland China every week.
