TAIPEI -- Far Eastern Air Transport (遠東航空) was set to launch two regular non-stop routes this week to link the central Taiwanese city of Taichung with Shijiazhuang and Taiyuan in North China.
Beginning Thursday, the Taichung-Shijiazhuang will offer one roundtrip flight between the two cities every Thursday and Sunday.
After the Taichung-Taiyuan route launches a day later, it is set to fly roundtrip every Tuesday and Friday.
Far Eastern Air said it hopes the new routes will encourage travel from central Taiwan. The airline set up its counter at the Taichung airport earlier this year.
