Ten airlines from the mainland and Taiwan will make 19 round-trip flights for the traditional Duanwu, or Dragon Boat Festival, from June 3-15, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said Thursday.

The mainland airports involved are in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Xiamen, with one in Taiwan -- Taipei.

Shanghai will have the most flights on the mainland, with 14 round-trip charter flights.

Carriers that will operate the flights are Air China, China Eastern, China Southern, Xiamen Airlines and Shanghai Airlines on the mainland, and China Airlines, Mandarin Airlines, EVA Air, UNI Air and TransAsia Airways in Taiwan.

People in mainland celebrate their first "official" Dragon Boat holiday this year. The State Council (cabinet) revised the official holiday schedule late last year to add three traditional festivals -- Qingming, Duanwu and Zhongqiu -- in response to public demand.

The Dragon Boat Festival falls on June 8 this year.
