Taiwan's Eva Airways to start direct China flights

TAIPEI, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Eva Airways , Taiwan's second-biggest airline, said on Friday it would start daily direct flights to China next month amid Taiwan's warming ties with the mainland.

The move, part of an expanded flight agreement across the Taiwan Straits, would allow Eva Airways to fly to the Chinese cities of Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shenzhen, James Jeng, the company's president, told reporters at a briefing.

"We will maximise the benefits of these flights, and will be broadening our co-operation with Chinese airlines," he said.

The increased number of flights come after top officials from China and Taiwan signed deals earlier this month on daily direct flights, new cargo routes and food safety during Beijing's highest-level visit to its political rival in 60 years.

Eva signed an agreement with China Eastern Airlines in June to work more closely on ticketing and baggage handling issues.

All flights between Taiwan and China previously had to go through a third city, usually Hong Kong, as they did not have regular direct links since the end of the civil war in 1949, but relations have warmed since China-friendly President Ma Ying-jeou took office in May.

China considers self-ruled Taiwan to be part of its territory and has threatened to bring the island under its rule, by force if necessary.

Jeng also said Eva Airways would try to swing to profit in the fourth quarter amid falling oil prices and a bottoming-out of the global economy.

The airline, along with other rivals worldwide, has been badly hit by high oil prices, reporting a T$1.87 billion ($57 million) loss last year and a T$10.47 billion loss in the first three quarters of 2008.

At midday trading, shares of Eva Airway rose 2.3 percent, beating the broader market's <.TWII> 1 percent gain. (US$1=T$33)

EVA Airways Eyes Chinese Partners To Expand China Network
14 November 2008

TAIPEI (Dow Jones)--EVA Airways Corp. (2618.TW) plans to expand its network in China by partnering with Chinese airlines, as Taiwan and China prepare to launch daily direct charter passenger flights, Executive Vice President Solomon Lin said Friday.

"We're talking to everybody (on the Chinese side)," Lin told reporters, when asked which Chinese airline could be EVA's partner.

EVA may also set up new joint ventures in China, on top of its 25%-owned cargo joint venture with Shanghai Airlines Co. (600591.SH), Lin said.

"I think we can do more in this area," he said.

EVA Airways, Taiwan's second-largest airline by revenue after China Airlines Ltd., already has a ground-handling and maintenance cooperation with China Eastern Airlines Corp. (CEA) for weekend charter passenger flights.

Taiwan and China signed an agreement last week to triple the number of charter passenger flights between the two sides to 108 per week and make the routes more direct.

The two sides also agreed to operate the charter passenger flights on a daily basis and to launch 60 charter cargo flights per month. The flights will start 40 days from the signing of the agreement.

Lin said the company hasn't finalized the destinations it would fly to in China because the Chinese side hasn't published yet the flight allocation for the Chinese airlines.

When the daily direct passenger flights start, the net contribution will be relatively small, with a net add of 15 flights per week, compared with the 270 flights EVA operates each week globally.

But the growth opportunity lies in scheduled flights, which Taiwan and China said they hope to finalize within half a year, said Lin.

Only 316,000 visitors from China came to Taiwan in 2007, compared with 4.63 million Taiwanese that visited China.

"This is a market that can have dramatic growth," said Lin.

Lin said EVA may cooperate with Chinese airlines on cargo space sharing, if its own charter cargo capacity to Shanghai is insufficient. EVA can operate seven charter cargo flights per month to Shanghai and eight to Guangzhou.

China Ups Number Of Carriers OK'd For Direct Taiwan Flights
21 November 2008

BEIJING (Dow Jones)--China's aviation regulator said late Thursday another three airlines have been approved to fly direct to Taiwan, bringing the total number to nine, and it gave details on the number of flights the carriers can operate each week across the strait.

The newly added airlines, Sichuan Airlines Co., Shandong Airlines Co. (200152.SZ), and Shenzhen Airlines, will each operate two flights a week to Taiwan, it said.

Air China Ltd. (0753.HK) and China Southern Airlines Co. (ZNH) will operate 10 flights a week to Taiwan, and China Eastern Airlines Corp. (CEA) will fly 12, the Civil Aviation Administration Of China said in a statement.

China Southern is the country's largest carrier by fleet size, followed by Air China and China Eastern.

Hainan Airlines Co. (600221.SH) and Shanghai Airlines Co. (600591.SH) will operate five and Xiamen Airlines will have six flights a week, it said.

China and Taiwan signed a historic agreement earlier this month to allow a total of 108 round-trip daily passenger charter flights each week, up from 18 round-trip flights that currently fly only during the weekend and during four major holidays each year, and detour over Hong Kong.

In addition, destinations on the mainland with direct routes across the strait will increase to 21 from five, the statement said. These include Chengdu, Chongqing, Hangzhou, Dalian, Shenzhen, Fuzhou, Qingdao, Kunming, Xian, and Tianjin.

The regulator said China Eastern's cargo unit, China Cargo Airlines, will fly 10 flights a month out of Shanghai to Taiwan, China Southern will fly 10 cargo flights monthly from Guangzhou, and Air China Cargo will fly five flights each out of Shanghai and Guangzhou to the island,

Tickets drop NT$1000 for cross-strait flights
22 November 2008
The China Post

Lin Hsin-der, deputy director general of the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, made the estimate during a recent seminar on new opportunities and challenges after the second-round talks between Chairman P.K. Chiang of Taiwaníªs Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) and Chairman Chen Yunlin of the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits.

During the Chiang-Chen meeting in early November in Taipei, they signed four pacts, including one allowing airlines of both sides of the strait to operate direct charter flights between major cities of both sides per day instead of flying over the air space of a third area as is practiced now.

Lin said at the seminar, held Thursday by the Institute of Transportation under the MOTC, that a direct flight between Taoyuan and Shanghai will take only 82 minutes for one trip, for a cut of 62 minutes from the original 144 minutes required for also flying over the airspace of Hong Kong.

But he said after checking airline companies operating the cross-strait flights, they're willing to cut the passenger ticket fare by only NT$1,000 to NT$2,000, although they can save one hour of fuel oil consumption.

TransAsia Airways, for instance, said that in case the flight time is cut by one hour, the fuel oil consumption of 3,500 liters can be saved, thus saving a cost of a little more than NT$100,000. If the savings are shared by 180 passengers per flight, then each passenger can be allocated only NT$600 to NT$700. Accordingly, airline firms can hardly cut too much off passenger ticket prices after direct charter flights officially kick off.

Warming China-Taiwan ties prompt hot air balloon trip: state media
25 November 2008
Agence France Presse

A group of adventurers plan to take advantage of warming ties between China and Taiwan and become the first to navigate a hot air balloon between the two neighbours, state media said Tuesday.

The flight across the Taiwan Strait is scheduled for July or August next year, Xinhua news agency said, citing the mainland Chinese involved.

"Warming cross-strait relations make the flight possible," the report quoted Du Jin'en, of the mainland's Aero Sports Federation, as saying.

It will be first hot air balloon flight across the 135-kilometre-wide (83-mile) strait, and is expected to take between three and seven hours depending on wind conditions, Xinhua said.

China views Taiwan as a rebel province awaiting reunification, by force if necessary. The two sides split at the end of a civil war in 1949.

Relations between the two sides began to relax after China-friendly Ma Ying-jeou became president of Taiwan in May.

Taiwan airlines to expand flights to China
28 November 2008
Agence France Presse

Taiwanese airlines said Friday they will expand direct services to three more Chinese cities starting mid-December amid closer economic ties between the two sides.

China Airlines and its unit Mandarin Airlines will offer four and two flights weekly to the southeastern Chinese cities of Shenzhen and Hangzhou, respectively, the companies said.

Its rival EVA Airways and its subsidiary UNI Airways will operate five and four flights per week to Shenzhen and Hangzhou, respectively, while TransAsia Airways will fly to Dalien in northeast China.

The airlines will also increase the number of flights to Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Nanjing.

Taiwan and China agreed earlier this month to triple direct flights to 108 per week and expand services to 21 Chinese cities, following deals in June to launch weekend fights.

The two sides split in 1949 after a civil war but Beijing still considers the island to be part of its territory awaiting reunification, by force if necessary.

Ties have improved dramatically since Beijing-friendly President Ma Ying-jeou came to power earlier this year on a platform of boosting economic ties with the mainland.

Cargo interests await fallout from Taiwan Strait link plan
1 December 2008
Lloyd's List

SHIPPING lines and air cargo operators in Hong Kong and Macau have taken a wait-and-see attitude to moves by the Chinese and Taiwan governments to establish direct links across the Taiwan Strait, writes Keith Wallis.

Now, however, the stark reality of such a move is hitting home after China and Taiwan signed four agreements on November 4 related to the creation of direct links. The pacts, including the cross-strait air transport and the cross-strait sea transport agreements, will allow Chinese- and Taiwanese-owned aircraft and ships to ply across the strait for the first time since the communists took over China in 1949.

Until now, flights between China and Taiwan have had to route via Hong Kong, Macau or other cities such as Pusan in South Korea. Ships operating services that include calls in China and Taiwan have also had to make an intermediate call at Hong Kong or pass through international waters close to Okinawa rather than call direct.

Such arrangements have provided a rich seam of business for Hong Kong and Macau airlines and their respective airports and ports. Air Macau estimated it gets at least 60% of its business from cross-strait services, while Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair acknowledged Hong Kong-Taiwan is one of their most lucrative ‘golden routes’.

While Hong Kong and Macau airlines are likely to lose out, direct links will benefit Chinese and Taiwan carriers such as China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Eva Air and China Airlines.

The likely impact on Hong Kong was outlined last week by Acting Secretary for Transport and Housing Yau Shing-mu.

He said Hong Kong International Airport handled 280,000 tonnes of air freight transhipped between Chinese and Taiwan airports last year, equivalent to 7.4% of the airport’s annual cargo throughput.

Hong Kong port last year handled 604,000 teu of cross-strait transhipment cargo that was destined for Taiwan or China’s Pearl River delta. This was equivalent to 3% of the territory’s total laden container throughput. A further 138,000 teu, or 0.7% of total laden throughput, was transhipment traffic between Taiwan and Chinese ports outside the Pearl River delta.

All this air and ocean freight could be lost. The agreements allow 60 cross-strait charter cargo flights per month between two cities in China and Taipei and Kaohsiung in Taiwan. Both China and Taiwan can add another 15 flights during the peak season in October-November. China will open 63 ports for direct cross-strait services, while Taiwan will open 11 ports.

Mr Yau said that under the ocean agreement, direct links can only be operated by ships owned by Chinese or Taiwanese companies that are flagged in Hong Kong or on open registers.

Taking a brave — some would say over-optimistic — view of this situation, Mr Yau said that while direct links will affect Hong Kong’s role as a transhipment port, they should be “on the whole beneficial to container and bulk cargo shipping operators”.

The links would also have a positive effect on maritime services such as shipping registration and insurance, he said.

But Mr Yau gave no such reassurance for airlines. Instead, he offered what observers called platitudes, saying the government would “continue to provide an enabling environment for the shipping and logistics industries to strengthen their position in the region”.

Hong Kong and Macau airlines expect the worst. While Chinese and Taiwanese airlines get ready to increase services, those of Hong Kong and Macau could scale back cargo services.

Taiwan Panel OKs China Transport Pact
Final Review Pending

4 December 2008

TAIPEI (Dow Jones)--Taiwan's legislative panel approved Thursday the closer transport links agreement signed Nov. 4 between Taiwan and China, clearing the main hurdle as the two sides prepare to launch daily charter passenger flights.

The Internal Administration Committee approved the transport pact, which still needs to pass the final review by the legislative session, said committee Chairman Lee Chia-Chin, a member of the majority Kuomintang party.

Lee said it wasn't yet clear if the agreement would make it Friday to the session because of a backlog of other bills awaiting review. 'We shall know by eleven tomorrow (morning,)' Lee said.

Taiwan and China signed an agreement to triple the number of charter passenger flights between the two sides to 108 weekly, and to operate them on a daily basis.

They also streamlined the flying routes, eliminating the previous detours through Hong Kong air space, and expanded the number of destinations for the flights.

The two sides also agreed to launch 60 charter cargo flights per month and launch direct shipping links.

Charter passenger flights currently operate only during the weekend and during four major holidays each year. Taiwan and China split in a civil war in 1949. China claims the self-ruled island as part of its territory.

While the agreement automatically takes effect in 40 days after signing, the Mainland Affairs Council, Taiwan's top China policy body, still sent it for review in the legislature.

'Carriers can't apply yet (for flights) to the Civil Aeronautics Administration until the review procedure has been completed,' Vice Minister of Transportation and Communications Oliver Yu said Wednesday during the hearing.

Aviation regulators on both sides have already announced the allocation of charter passenger flights between the different carriers, but haven't announced yet the date when the flights would start.

Mainland Affairs Council Vice Chairman Liu Te-Shun said the final review is largely a formality.

'Since it passed the committee, I don't see any other difficulties,' Liu said.

The legislative committee also approved Thursday the two other agreements signed Nov. 4, establishing a food safety inspection mechanism and closer postal links.

STRAIT CHARTER FLIGHTS FROM TAIWAN TO BE CUT BY 10%: CAA

TAIPEI, Dec 5 Asia Pulse - Airfares for northbound flights on direct cross-Taiwan Strait charter planes will be cut by an average of 10 per cent after such services are expanded to a daily basis, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said on Thursday.

CAA Director-General Lee Lung-wen made the remarks in response to recent appeals by the Consumers Foundation, which said ticket prices for direct cross-strait charter flights should be lowered to reflect the shortened flight time once such services are expanded to a daily basis from the current weekend basis.

Noting that the foundation's appeal was plausible, Lee said the CAA had persuaded five locally owned air carriers to lower their cross-strait ticket prices.

"All of the five carriers have given a positive response to our push, " Lee said, adding that China Airlines, Mandarin Airlines, EVA Airways and UNI Airways have promised to lower airfares on northbound cross-strait flights by an average of 10 per cent, while Trans Asia Airways will cut prices for one-way tickets by NT$500 (US$14.9) to NT$600.

Matsu tourism operators fear impact of cross-strait air links

Taipei, Dec. 4 (CNA) Tourism and shipping operators on outlying Matsu Island voiced concern Thursday over the opening of direct air links between Taiwan proper and Fuzhou in China's Fujian Province, which they said could seriously impact their livelihoods.

The operators took the issue to the island's Lienchiang County Government Transport Bureau after Chinese media reported recently that a one-way charter flight between Taipei and Fuzhou, to be operated by China's Xiamen Airlines, will cost 680 yuan (US$99).

The fare will be lower than a one-way ferry trip between the two destinations -- currently priced at 700 yuan -- according to the Chinese media report. The price will also be cheaper than the NT$3,800 for travel between Taiwan and Fuzhou via Matsu -- commonly known as the "mini links, " according to the Chinese media report.

In that case, the existing Matsu-Fuzhou ferry business will be seriously impacted because a direct Taipei-Fuzhou flight can also save at least three hours in travel time compared to sailing via the "mini links," tourism operators said.

County officials refused to comment on the concerns, however, saying that the Legislative Yuan has yet to approve accords inked last month between Taiwan and China on expanding the two-way air travel network and opening shipping services.

The "mini links" also include ferry services between Taiwan-held Kinmen Island and the Fujian ports of Xiamen and Quanzhou since January 2001.

兩岸直航機超低價搶客
東方日報
9 December 2008

【東方日報專訊】兩岸海、空直航將於下周一(十五日)正式啟動,其中由深圳直飛台北的首航航班,來回票價僅一千一百元(人民幣•下同),較市價低三百元,反應踴躍。有台商表示雖然深圳直航票價低,但航班較少,相信暫不會大量搶走香港客源。不過,本港旅遊業則坦言,內地飛台北航班票價極具競爭力,且路程及時間縮減,預計經香港前往兩地的商務旅客將損失一半以上。

深圳直飛台北的首航將由深圳航空公司執行,起飛時間為早上七時廿分。深航表示,為紀念首航,深航首航班機往返票價僅為一千一百元,較市價的一千四百元,便宜三百元,首航後票價將恢復正常。

首航機票1100元已售逾半

深航深圳營業部表示,首航的機票現已售出逾五成,乘客全部為台商,而散客和旅行團,則因辦理簽證的時間問題,於十二月份仍未有旅行團可直航台北。而除深航外,南航、華航及長榮亦提供深圳飛台北的航班服務。

深圳台商協會秘書長黃厚生表示,台商對於首航反應踴躍,他認為雖然深圳飛台北的機票較香港便宜,且深圳台商可免去往來香港的舟車之苦。但他指出,由於大陸直飛台灣的需求大,但深圳航班少,相對而言,香港的航班較多,可讓台商靈活選擇,故相信即使兩岸直航通航,亦不會搶去太多香港的台商客源。

香港旅行社協會主席胡兆英指,內地飛台北票價僅一千四百元,即使連燃油附加費,仍較香港飛台北便宜一至兩百元,票價上已具吸引力。再者,現時經香港到內地的台商,一般要轉由海路或陸路前往廣東省;兩岸直飛後,台商不但可省卻船票及車票,路程亦至少節省一個半小時。他預計,兩岸直航後,經香港前往兩地的商務旅客將損失一半以上。

國泰航空回應指,航空業一直競爭大,國泰仍會為乘客提供物超所值的服務,來往香港及台北的航班將維持正常運作。而港龍航空則稱,一直會就市場各方面的發展及其影響作出觀察及研究。長遠而言,兩岸更多客運往來,將令整體市場得以擴展,各方面均可受惠。

海運直航將於下周一啟動

另外,兩岸海運直航亦將於下周一啟動。海峽兩岸航運交流協會理事長胡漢湘昨透露,首航路線以上海及高雄最為熱門。

SHANGHAI-TAIWAN FLIGHT DATE SET
10 December 2008
China Daily

China Eastern Airlines (CEA) will launch its first direct chartered flight from Shanghai to Taiwan on Monday.

Top mainland and Taiwan negotiators signed historic agreements early last month in Taipei to establish fullfledged links in transport, postal services and trade across the Straits.

Previously, six mainland carriers and five Taiwan carriers had been operating direct charter flights on the four traditional Chinese holidays and at weekends. Since July this year, there have been four flights a week. The aircraft, however, have had to fly through Hong Kong's airspace.

Following the new agreement, flights will bypass Hong Kong, shortening travel time, and the frequency has been increased from four times a week to daily.

CEA said it had received approval from the authorities to add three airports Xi'an, Kunming and Wuhan to its flight plans. The inaugural flights to Xi'an and Kunming will be take place on Dec 27, and to Wuhan on Dec 25.

The airline said that from Monday, flights from Shanghai to Taiwan will increase from three times a week to daily, and direct flights from Nanjing will also be increased from one to two a week.

The new Shanghai-Nanjing route will save 70 to 80 minutes from the previous indirect route, it said.

China Cargo FN, an airline managed by CEA, will also launch direct flights from next month. There will be 10 flights a week.

The agreement allows for 60 cargo flights per month across the Straits.

The United Daily News reported earlier that China Airlines, Taiwan's leading carrier, has begun taking bookings for flights operating between Monday and the end of the year. The airline was quoted as saying that its route from Taipei to Shanghai will take 105 minutes, instead of 82 minutes as earlier anticipated.

Direct daily flights start between China-Taiwan: state media
14 December 2008
Agence France Presse

Direct daily flights between China and Taiwan began on Monday, official media announced, one of the most visible steps to mark rapidly improving relations between the island and the mainland this year.

Direct shipping transport and postal services across the Taiwan Strait also started on Monday, Xinhua news agency reported.

The first flight departed the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen for Taiwan at 7:20 am (2320 GMT Sunday), with another one taking off from Shanghai 40 minutes later, Xinhua reported.

A commercial flight from the Taiwanese capital of Taipei also departed for Shanghai at 8:00 am, according to Xinhua.

China and Taiwan have been separated since the end of a civil war in 1949, and the communist authorities in Beijing have threatened to invade the island should it ever seek formal independence.

However relations between the two sides have improved dramatically this year, following the election of Ma Ying-jeou as Taiwan's president.

Direct flights have been available only at weekends for the past few months, and they were ramped up to daily services as ties grew closer.

Twelve air carriers from the two sides have applied for 101 flights in the first week, providing services between four Taiwan and 12 Chinese cities, authorities said earlier.

Taiwan's transportation ministry estimates local airlines and passengers will save around three billion Taiwan dollars (89.8 million US) a year, and shipping companies around half that, with the direct links.

Chronicle of developments in direct cross-Straits links

BEIJING, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- For the first time since 1949, the Chinese mainland and Taiwan had direct air, sea and postal services on Monday.

The move ended the practice that air and sea transport as well as mail between the mainland and Taiwan had to go through a third place, usually Hong Kong or Macao.

It also realized the agreements signed in November by the mainland's Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS) and its Taiwan counterpart, the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF).

Following are some major events and breakthroughs paving the way for a basic realization of the "three direct links" across the Taiwan Straits over the past three decades:

Jan. 1, 1979 -- The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, or the top legislature, called for an early realization of the three direct cross-Straits links on transport, mail and trade in its "Message to Compatriots in Taiwan."

The mainland authority then said publicly several times that it was ready to hold talks with Taiwan to prepare for the three direct links.

The mainland also launched cross-Straits mail and telephone services during 1979. After 1979, the mainland allowed Taiwan products to enter at lower tax rates or tax-exempt.

July, 1988 -- The State Council, or cabinet, promulgated regulations encouraging Taiwan compatriots to invest on the mainland.

1989 - Mail between the mainland and Taiwan went through Hong Kong. Taiwan also opened telephone and telegraph services via a third place.

April, 1993 -- Postal departments across the Straits formally launched joint registered mail services, in line with the protocol signed between the ARATS and the SEF.

March, 1994 -- The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress passed the law on the protection of Taiwan compatriots' investment on the mainland.

1996 -- The mainland's China Telecom and Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom established direct telecommunications services across the Straits.

April, 1997 -- Experimental direct shipping was launched between the mainland's Fuzhou and Xiamen and Taiwan's southern city, Kaohsiung.

March, 1998 -- Cross-Straits regular container shipping began and cargo ships went across the Straits through a third place without transshipment.

December, 1999 -- The State Council drew up detailed rules for the law on the protection of Taiwan compatriots' investment on the mainland.

Early 2001 -- Cargo and passenger shipping services were launched between Taiwan's ports of Kinmen and Matsu and the coast of the mainland's Fujian Province.

Spring Festival, 2003 -- To let Taiwan businessmen living on the mainland enjoy the Spring Festival at home, the mainland allowed 16 charter flights by six Taiwan airlines to land in Shanghai to fly them home and back to Shanghai, from Taipei and Kaohsiung via Hong Kong or Macao. It was the first regular landing at a mainland airport for Taiwan airlines in more than 50 years.

2005 -- Both mainland and Taiwan airlines operated Spring Festival charter flights together for the first time. Flights did not need to land in Hong Kong or Macao but had to fly over the Hong Kong Flight Information Region.

Early 2006 -- The two sides decided to expand Spring Festival charter flights to other traditional Chinese festivals such as the mid-autumn, tomb-sweeping and dragon-boat festivals.

June, 2008 -- The ARATS and the SEF signed Minutes of Talks in Beijing, agreeing to launch cross-Straits weekend charter flights on July 4.

Nov. 4, 2008 --The ARATS and the SEF signed in Taipei protocols on direct shipping, air transport and postal services, which allowed regular civilian planes and ships to directly cross the Taiwan Straits.

Dec. 15, 2008 -- Direct shipping, air transport and postal services were formally launched.

China transport links to help spur Taiwan economy

TAIPEI, Dec 15 (Reuters) - Taiwan's launch of direct cargo links with China on Monday will help it better compete with rival transport hubs Hong Kong and Singapore, while logistic firms are poised to triple contribution to economic growth, analysts say.

The launch of first-ever direct cargo flights and shipping routes between both sides marked a resumption of services after a six-decade gap dating back to the end of the Chinese civil war in 1949.

Taiwan's Kaohsiung port was one of the world's top ports as recently as the late 1990s, but its ranking has slipped steadily to No. 8 in 2007 as Chinese ports caught up due to China's growing economic clout.

Taiwan ports have also lost business to fast expanding regional transportation hubs such as Hong Kong and Singapore.

"It's never too late to implement these links," President Ma Ying-jeou said at a ceremony in Kaohsiung, once the world's third-largest port and launch point for the first ship taking the direct route to China under the new agreement.

Taiwan leaders say the links will spur Taiwan's economy in years by luring more businesses to set up shop in the island due to its closeness with China.

Previously, goods from Taiwan had to be transported to a third destination, such as Hong Kong, before heading towards China. Direct links could save shippers about T$1.2 billion ($36 million) a year through shorter transit times and lower fuel costs and working hours, according to government estimates.

Ma's China-friendly policies have been welcomed by Taiwanese businesses, which have long complained that they were losing competitiveness to Asian peers due to testy ties under former President Chen Shui-bian.

Transportation, logistics and communications contributed just 0.14 percentage point to Taiwan's GDP growth of 5.7 percent in 2007. But analysts say the figure could at least triple under the new agreements and infrastructure improvements.

Taiwan's transport firms, such Evergreen Marine , Wan Hai Lines and Yang Ming Marine Transport Corp , hope Monday's launch will mark a watershed, helping them to get a more competitive edge.

Taiwan's transporatation sub-index <.TTPI> outperformed the market earlier in the day by rising as much as 5.7 percent before erasing some gains to end 2.6 percent higher, lagging the main index's <.TWII> 3.0 percent rise.

"These links will put Taiwan's shipping firms on a more level playing field in the region," said Frank Lu, chairman of Yang Ming Marine, Taiwan's second-largest cargo shipping firm. "We've been yearning for this for years."

But the island will need to seize the moment if it wants to reclaim a place alongside such logistics powerhouses as Hong Kong and Singapore, analysts said.

"The current financial crisis is a good time for us to catch up with our rivals," David Hong, president of Taiwan Institute of Economic Research, referring to Hong Kong and Singapore.

"These deals will definitely help, but it will require a lot more other things to create a package to convince foreign investors that Taiwan has all it takes to become a key transportation hub in Asia," Hong said.

Direct shipping links, mail and flights launched
16 December 2008
Taipei Times

Direct cross-strait flights, shipping and mail services were launched yesterday, with the first flight to China taking off from Taipei at 8am.

TransAsia Airways flight GE332 left Taipei Songshan Airport with 144 passengers and landed in Shanghai at 9:50am.

China's first direct flight to Taiwan was a Shenzhen Airlines plane that arrived at Songshan Airport at 8:45am.

TransAsia was the only carrier offering direct flights from Songshan airport to destinations in China. China Airlines and Eva Airways will fly aircraft with twice the capacity out of Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

Mail will arrive on average one day earlier than before, Chunghwa Post Co deputy general manager Chen Tsi-te said. Chen said the company had signed contracts with China Airlines and Eva Airways to transport parcels on direct flights.

Meanwhile, at Kaohsiung Harbor, direct shipping links got underway at 10am, when the Uni-Adroit, a full-container ship owned and operated by Taiwan's Evergreen Marine Corp, set sail for Tianjin.

Two cargo ships also departed Tianjin and were scheduled to arrive at Kaohsiung and Keelung ports within 48 hours - cutting an estimated 18 hours off the journey.

Presiding over the launch ceremony in Kaohsiung, President Ma Ying-jeou said he was pleased about the establishment of the links, adding that he had published a white paper on direct air and shipping links 16 years ago when he was vice chairman of the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC).

Ma said he was satisfied that air and shipping transport links across the Taiwan Strait had been launched only six months and 15 days into his administration.

"The opening of direct air and shipping links means the two sides are no longer hostile toward each other and are willing to replace confrontation with dialogue and conflict with reconciliation," he said.

Premier Liu Chao-shiuan and Mainland Affairs Council Chairwoman Lai Shin-yuan attended an inauguration ceremony at Keelung Harbor, where container vessels from Wan Lai Lines Ltd, Yang Ming Group, Taiwan Navigation Co and the China-based Fujian Huarong Marine Shipping Co were scheduled to leave for China.

The companies launched the vessels at around 10:35am after the Keelung Harbor Bureau released balloons and boats anchored next to each container vessel shot water into the air to celebrate.

"I can't describe how grateful and joyful I am to witness these four container vessels turning a new page in the country's history," Liu said at the ceremony.

Direct cross-strait shipping will benefit not only China-based Taiwanese businesses and shipping companies, but also the public at large, Liu said.

"For passengers, if you board a vessel at 8pm, you will be in mainland China when you wake up the next morning. [It will] also cut costs for businesses. A 20,000-tonne cargo ship will save around NT$200,000 per trip from Keelung to any port in China's Fujian Province," Liu said.

Liu said direct shipping would also help businesses tap into the Chinese market.

"Transporting Taiwanese fruit and seafood to China via direct shipping will be faster. I believe that Taiwanese food products will be very popular in mainland China, especially after the contaminated milk food [scandal]," Liu said.

On regulations that will see ships remove their national flags before anchoring at their destination, Liu said: "Both sides of the Strait agreed to remove their flags when vessels enter the territory of the other side to put aside political disputes," Lai said.

Lai said the purpose of launching direct air and sea links was to help Taiwanese make a profit in China and not to "pay tribute to China" as the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) had said.

The Straits Exchange Foundation and the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait signed four agreements on Nov. 4 to expand transportation and postal links and address food safety issues.

The agreements took effect by default after one month despite failing to complete a legislative review.

KMT caucus whip Lin Yi-shih said there was no need for the legislature to complete second and third readings of the agreements since they had already taken effect.

The agreements took effect in accordance with Article 95 of the Act Governing Relations Between Peoples of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area, and the regulation was set up under the previous DPP government, Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng said.

The Article states that "the competent authorities shall request the consent of the Legislative Yuan before permitting direct business transactions or direct sea or air transportation between the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area, or permitting the people of the Mainland Area to enter into the Taiwan Area to work, and if the Legislative Yuan fails to adopt any resolution within one month after the request during its session, the consent is deemed granted."

Meanwhile, academics said yesterday the links were neither strictly beneficial nor harmful.

"The big three links are neither a cure nor poison for Taiwan; they are a tool," said Chang Wu-ueh, a professor at Tamkang University's Institute of China Studies.

"The goal is first to enhance Taiwan's investment environment and improve its economy," he said.

Chang said direct links were only the first step.

"There are people and businesses who will benefit from them directly, those that will benefit in the short term and those that will only see benefits in the long term. There are also businesses that will be hurt. While airlines, shipping companies and business travelers will see immediate gains, [their gains] are not [the most important]," Chang said.

The government should think about how to enhance the nation's competitive edge with investors, he said.

The links can connect Taiwan to the global economy, he said. With direct links, investors will not be forced to base their upper, middle and downstream operations in China, he said.

"Considering the social and economic developments in the two countries, businesses can divide sectors of their operations and place those with more added value in Taiwan," he said.

Meanwhile, the DPP said yesterday in a press statement that the implementation of direct links had harmed Taiwan in four ways.

It said the failure to receive legislative approval had harmed the nation's democracy. The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) government ignored the legislative branch and democratic principles, the statement said.

The party said the four agreements were signed within the "one China" framework and had put the nation's sovereignty at risk.

Direct flights and allowing Chinese vessels at the nation's ports will endanger national security, it said.

The party said diseases and substandard food products would pose a greater risk with less strict control mechanisms under the new links.

The DPP said the KMT government only spoke about the economic benefits brought by closer economic exchanges, but failed to discuss potential problems.

The agriculture sector and labor market will be hit hard by the dumping of Chinese products and the relocation of more factories to China, it said.

Small and medium businesses would also be increasingly under threat, the party said.

DPP caucus whip William Lai told a press conference the legislature was a symbol of sovereignty. That the agreements were enacted without its approval was equivalent to belittling the nation's sovereignty, he said.

DPP lawmakers said the KMT stalled the review of the agreements to prevent them from going to a vote.

'HK offers flights every hour, so it's still the most convenient for us'
16 December 2008
South China Morning Post

Daily direct flights between the mainland and Taiwan are unlikely to have a big impact on the business and travel patterns of Taiwanese living in the Pearl River Delta, even though the mainland says the services will make a one-day round-trip from either side of the strait possible.

"The flights are still infrequent; it doesn't change the fact that I can't spend my weekend in Taipei," Shunde plantation company manager Chen Chang-lung said.

Given the greater frequency of flights, he would be able to visit his family in Taiwan more often, he said. "Now, I go to Taipei once every three to four months."

Direct charter flights between Taiwan and the mainland have been running since July, but only at weekends and on major holidays.

The new flights mean expanded services - previously limited to Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou - to 13 mainland cities, including Shenzhen, Nanjing and Chengdu .

While there will be 41 flights each week between Taiwan and Shanghai, only four weekly services will be available between Guangzhou and Taipei, and six between Shenzhen and Taipei.

The first passenger flight departed Shenzhen for Taipei at 7.20am yesterday, with 120 passengers on board, while the first air cargo service left for Taipei from Guangzhou.

Direct shipping services have also begun between Taiwan and 63 mainland ports, including Shanghai, Ningbo , Zhuhai and Shenzhen.

Hung Chia-sheng, deputy chairman of the Taiwanese Merchants Association in Shenzhen, said Hong Kong would remain an important transit centre for Taiwanese businessmen.

"Hong Kong offers flights every hour, so Hong Kong is still the most convenient for us," he said.

Mr Hung, who runs a consumer electronics factory in Shenzhen, also said he had no plans to move his factory northwards to cut costs.

"We are exporters, our concern is not how many ports are open but more about whether the less developed regions have a supply chain."

Chen En , director of Jinan University's Institute of Taiwan Economy, said the biggest benefit of the direct flights and shipments would be lower operating costs.

"Most Taiwanese businesses in the Pearl River Delta are exporters who rely on Taiwan for most of their raw materials, so opening more ports for direct shipping will have a significant impact on reducing costs," Professor Chen said.

He noted, however, that Taiwanese businesses still faced many trade barriers in the way of full access to mainland markets.

There are 21,000 Taiwan-invested enterprises in Guangdong and most are small to medium-sized manufacturers, the institute said. Most are concentrated in Dongguan , Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

Nearly 30,000 Taiwanese businesses operate in the Yangtze River Delta.
