CAA doles out cross-strait flights

China Airlines (CAL) and EVA Airways (EVA) were the biggest winners in the allocation of additional cross-strait flights, with each receiving 19 more flights from the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) yesterday.

Taiwan and China reached an agreement earlier this month to raise the total number of cross-strait weekly flights from 370 to 558. Carriers on each side will receive an additional 94 weekly flights through the new agreement.

The administration held meetings with the carriers starting last week to address the distribution of the added cross-strait flights, before a conclusion was reached yesterday.

Civil Aeronautics Administration Deputy Director-General Lee Wan-lee (李萬里) said CAL and EVA were each given 19 additional flights because of the size of their fleets, as well as their past record of complying with government policies.

TransAsia Airways and Mandarin Airlines were each given 11 additional flights, while Uni Air received 10.

Meanwhile, CAL, EVA and TransAsia were each awarded one “red-eye” flight to Shanghai.

CAL also received a new flight service to Beijing from Greater Kaohsiung after a random drawing.

Flights to Shanghai and Beijing are coveted by carriers because they are generally in high demand.

Of the 94 new regular flights, five were previously charter flights that were offered on demand only, including two fights from Greater Taichung to Wuhan and Zhengzhou in Hubei and Henan provinces respectively, two from Hualien to Hanzhou, Zhejiang Province, and Wuhan, and one from Hualien to Nanjing.

Far Eastern Air Transport (FAT), which resumed operations in April, was awarded 24 flights on the condition that it increase its fleet size to meet potential demand.

The administration had suspended FAT’s license in May 2008 because of its financial difficulties. When the nation launched cross-strait flight services in July 2008, the administration reserved 15 flights for FAT, but the quota was temporarily shared by five other carriers.

The new agreement gave FAT nine additional flights.

Those nine flights must be available for customers within three months of the airline obtaining them, or else they must be returned.

The administration said tickets to Beijing and Shanghai would drop by 20 percent because of the increased number of flights.

Lee said the airlines would need time to evaluate the demand for different flights and to file applications both in Taiwan and in China. Aside from flights to Shanghai, Lee said a majority of the new flights could be included in flight schedules by the end of October.

TAIWAN BUSINESSMEN HUNGRY FOR MORE USEFUL MAINLAND FLIGHTS
17 May 2011
Asia Pulse

BEIJING, May 17 Asia Pulse - The Taiwanese business community in China said Monday Taiwan should consider increasing direct cross-strait flights to popular destinations to meet their commercial needs.

As the fifth round of cross-Taiwan Strait flight talks kicked off in Beijing earlier in the day, several business executives voiced their strong support for more flights to cities in which they have most of their business interests, such as Beijing and Shanghai.

With Taiwan aiming to increasing the number of direct flights from the current 370 per week to 500, they said they want the added flights to go where it counts.

Miss Lee, who works in the art industry and travels regularly to and from Beijing, said currently there are only 28 one-way flights per week between Taipei's Taoyuan airport and Beijing, with only four flights per day, on average.

Because of the limited seating, Lee said sometimes she still needs to take transit flights via Hong Kong -- a throwback to the old days when direct flights were banned before 2008.

She also said there were once flights between Taipei SongShan Airport and Beijing, but they were later canceled. Instead, flights to Tianjin, Hefei in Anhui province, and Wuhan in Hubei province were added.

From Miss Lee's standpoint, she could not understand why the Beijing route was canceled despite the obviously higher demand when compared with these other destinations.

Meanwhile, Mr. Hsu, a Taiwanese businessman in Shanghai who owns a tea business, said he does not oppose the idea of taking late night flights. However, if flights were added to second-tier cities in China such as Hefei, Wuhan, and Jinan in Shandong province, it would not be of much help to him.

However, he said flights to second-tier cities may be beneficial to Taiwanese businessmen working there. It would also increase chances for locals in those cities to travel to Taiwan.

According to the Beijing Association of Taiwan Investment Enterprises, there are currently 1.5 million Taiwanese living or working in China. Among them, 800,000 live in the Yangtze River delta region, which includes Shanghai. Around 30,000 live in Beijing.
