Cross-strait charter flight services for the Mid-Autumn Festival finished yesterday with an EVA Airways flight from Taipei to Shanghai. Taiwanese businesspeople and their families were among the more than 300 passengers on board the last flight. Many of the passengers said they hoped that such direct charter flights could be implemented more frequently in the future to help them save time and money. Air carriers from both sides are also looking forward to conducting more cross-strait charter flights because they will be able to make substantial profits with fully loaded charter airplanes, business sources said. The charter flights began on Sept. 29, with six air carriers from each side providing the service between Taipei and Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Xiamen.
