2,366 domestic flights scheduled over Spring Festival

2024-02-07

To get people home to the outlying islands, domestic airlines will run 2,366 flights over the holiday, with a total capacity of more than 200,000 seats. In addition, the defense ministry will provide two military aircraft each day to accommodate the Spring Festival rush.

Today a lot of people were able to get off the waitlist, and the situation might be even better tomorrow. We’ve also got military aircraft, and we’ve reached an agreement with the defense ministry: Toward the end of Spring Festival, military aircraft will be available at Kinmen, so that if commercial flights can’t meet demand, the military can provide assistance.

Between Feb. 7 and Feb. 15, transport on two C-130 aircraft will be provided to officers, soldiers, and private citizens. The defense ministry said its transport service would not affect combat readiness and flight training operations.
