Mainland flag barer Air China opened Taiwan office in Taipei on the afternoon of March 16.

Kong Dong, chairman of Air China, said during the opening ceremony for the establishment of Air China's Taiwan office that this has planted a seed for the spring of cross-Strait exchange.

He said he believes that Air China's business in Taiwan will grow strong and prosperous in the future and hopes this move will make a great contribution towards promoting cross-Strait exchange and cooperation.

According to Zhang Yun, general manager of Air China's Taipei office, Air China currently operates routes from five cities-- Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Hangzhou and Chongqing--to Taiwan, offering over 4,000 seats on 20 roundtrip flights every week for passengers from both sides of the Strait.

As a witness, participant and promoter of cross-Strait direct flights, Air China had carried 57,900 passengers on 444 charter passenger flights, with an average load factor of nearly 75 percent, since July 2008 when cross-Strait charter flights on weekends were launched to the end of February this year.

Guests attending the opening ceremony that day included Chiang Pin-kung, Chairman of the Straits Exchange Foundation, and Lee Lung-wen, Director-General of the "Civil Aeronautics Administration" of Taiwan.
