Historic Taiwan flight lands in China

Historic Taiwan flight lands in China

Taiwan's largest airline, China Airlines, has made history by becoming the island's first carrier to land in mainland China in more than 50 years.

The charter flight arrived in the Chinese city of Shanghai via Hong Kong at 0852 (0052 GMT), where it picks up Taiwanese who want to travel back home to celebrate the lunar New Year holiday.

People on both sides of the Taiwan Strait have not been able to legally fly or sail across the 160-kilometre-wide (100-mile-wide) body of water since Taiwan and China split amid a bloody civil war in 1949.
