The first direct flights between bitter rivals China and since the end of a civil war 55 years ago started carrying Lunar New Year holidaymakers amid hopes for improving cross-strait relations.

Six Chinese planes landed in Taipei and one in southern Kaohsiung while Taiwan’s China Airlines and EVA Airways also each sent a flight to Beijing on the first day of the temporary opening of the air links.
