Brunei-Kinmen charter flights scheduled for November

Kinmen, Sept. 12 (CNA) The Kinmen Tourism Department announced earlier this week that four international charter flights will fly from Brunei to Kinmen in November, as part of efforts to promote tourism to Taiwan's outlying county.

In view of the falling number of tourist arrivals from China, Kinmen government has been working to attract visitors from other countries in the region, the department said.

In addition to Brunei, Kinmen government also has plans to promote charter flights from Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Japan and South Korea in the near future.

Kinmen County Magistrate Yang Cheng-wu (楊鎮浯) said he mentioned the idea of a Brunei charter flight to former foreign ministry spokesman Andrew Lee (李憲章), who visited the offshore county on July 30.

Lee, who took up his new position as head of Taiwan's representative office to Brunei in August, said at the time that promoting charter flights from the Southeast Asian country to Kinmen would be among his top priorities, according to Yang.

Department director Ting Chien-kang (丁健剛), said the plan for international charter flights to Kinmen was first laid out earlier this year.

With assistance from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) and the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC), it was later agreed that Royal Brunei Airlines would operate the Brunei-Kinmen charters in late November, Ting said.

Getting Brunei to agree to the charter flights has been a huge breakthrough, he said.

Brunei is located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. It has the second-highest Human Development Index among the Southeast Asian nations, after Singapore, and is classified as a developed country.

Its national carrier, Royal Brunei Airlines, restarted direct flight services to Taiwan in December last year after a 15-year hiatus.

The company currently operates three round-trip flights per week between Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport and Brunei International Airport, according to the airline's official website.
