    This will be the first time in over 60 years that there have been regular
direct flights between Mainland China and Taiwan. Since 2006, Air China has
operated special charter flights between Beijing and Taiwan during the four
traditional Chinese holidays -- Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn Day, Tomb Sweeping
Day, and Dragon Boat Festival.
    The new flights will help all travelers from both sides of the Straits to
travel more freely between the Mainland and Taiwan. This will open up
business, cultural and travel opportunities between the cities. The flights
will also offer travelers from Taiwan a convenient gateway to connect with
flights from Beijing to other cities and countries throughout the world.
