Taiwanese carriers EVA Airways and China Airlines (CAL) on Tuesday both announced plans to increase November services between Shanghai Pudong Airport and Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.
CAL will roll out weekly Thursday services between Taoyuan and Pudong beginning Nov. 3, with EVA Air starting the same schedule from Nov. 10.
This means there will be a total of seven flights between Shanghai and Taiwan in November, up from the current four to five.
