TransAsia flights to Osaka to double on high demand

TAIPEI -- TransAsia Airways, one of Taiwan's smaller carriers, announced that it is to double its flight services to the Japanese city of Osaka in the wake of increasing interest in travel to the city.

“Osaka is one of the favorite destinations for Taiwanese visitors to Japan,” said airline spokeswoman Kao Chi-hua.

Citing a recent survey by travel website Hotels.com, the airline said Osaka is behind only Tokyo as the second-most popular travel destination among Taiwanese tourists traveling overseas.

Travel momentum to Osaka has been on a steady rise, TransAsia said, adding that according to the Japan Tourism Agency, one in five foreign visitors to Japan in 2012 would visit Osaka.
