Taipei, May 20 (CNA) Far Eastern Air Transport Corp. (FAT), a medium-sized
international carrier in Taiwan, announced Monday it will restore five flights that were originally canceled through the end of May to transport stranded passengers home.
FAT said it will fly three round-trip flights between Taoyuan and Fukushima in Japan on May 23, 26 and 30, and round-trip flights between Taipei Songshan Airport and Tianjin on May 24 and Taiyuan on May 25.
The airline hopes those flights will help bring passengers grounded in those cities back to Taiwan, FAT said.
The new schedule was made after FAT announced on May 17 without warning that it was canceling round-trips to Palawan and Boracay in the Philippines and Danang in Vietnam for the rest of May, effective the following day. [FULL STORY]
