SHANGHAI -- Chinese budget carrier Spring Airlines will host an in-flight matchmaking event on a flight heading for Taiwan scheduled for March 13, the first of its kind across the Taiwan Strait.
The flight will depart from Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport for Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, flying the participants to Taipei for a four-day, three-night tour, said Zhang Wuan, spokesman for the airline.
The tour will include a romantic Ferris wheel ride at Miramar Entertainment Park on March 14, White Day, Zhang said.
White Day, which falls one month after Valentine's Day, is a tradition originating from Japan that is also celebrated in some neighboring countries, including China. Those who receive gifts on Valentine's Day are expected to give gifts in return on White Day.
