New direct flight linking Kaohsiung, Ningbo to open in July
Chinese mainland airline Spring Airlines announced on Wednesday the opening of a direct flight to link Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan with Ningbo in Zhejiang Province.
The route will start operating on July 4. The two-hour flight is scheduled twice a week, departing Kaohsiung for Ningbo on Thursdays and returning on Sundays, the budget carrier said. 
Yeh Kuang-Shih, deputy mayor of Kaohsiung, said the new flight can promote local tourism and industrial development and bring more business and investment opportunities.
Kaohsiung has direct flight links with more than a dozen cities on the mainland. Spring Airlines now operates several flights across the Taiwan Strait.
