The first cross-Strait weekend chartered flight from China's mainland to Taiwan landed at Taipei Taoyuan airport early Friday Morning.
The historic flight, which took off at 6:31 a.m. from Guangzhou, capital city of China's southern Guangdong Province, arrived at about 8:10 a.m. after a 1,124-km journey.
More than 100 mainland tourists aboard the Airbus A330 of China Southern Airlines (CSA) became the first group of people on a sight-seeing tour allowed to Taiwan amid warming cross-Strait ties.
There were 258 passengers in the flight.
