A proposal to open a direct flight route between Miami and Taipei has drawn the attention of Republic of China (Taiwan) President Tsai Ing-wen after she flew to the U.S. city Friday for a transit stop en route to Panama.

In a meeting in Panama City Saturday with members of a U.S. congressional delegation attending the June 26 inauguration ceremony for the expanded Panama Canal, Tsai said she was not aware that many people are looking forward to the opening of the direct flight route until she arrived in Miami.

Tsai said she is willing to find out whether or not China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan’s largest air carrier, would be willing to provide such direct flight services, she was cited as saying by Presidential Office Deputy Secretary-General Tseng Hou-jen.

The Boeing 777 flying Tsai to Panama had flown direct from Taipei to Miami.     [FULL  STORY]
