Taiwan's Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) has allocated flights to the country's carriers on the Taipei Songshan-Shanghai Hongqiao route, days after Taiwan and China decided to allow non-stop flights between the two airports.

Taiwan's China Airlines and EVA Air will operate on the route six times weekly each, while TransAsia Airways will operate a twice-weekly service, says the CAA. Flights are expected to begin on 14 June.

Taiwan and China agreed on 22 May to allow 100 additional non-stop passenger flights and 20 additional cargo flights a week between the two countries.

Under the flight expansion, both countries' airlines are allowed to operate 14 flights weekly each on the Taipei Songshan-Shanghai Hongqiao route.

Scheduled non-stop flights between China and Taiwan began last August for the first time in 60 years, following an agreement signed last April.
