【看英文中國郵報學英文】上週中國宣布限制來台自由行,山東航空八日表示將取消8月24日起濟南與花蓮間的航班。

Shandong Airlines will cancel charter flights between Jinan and Hualien from Aug. 24, the airline said on Aug. 8, dealing a fresh blow to Taipei following Beijing’s ban on solo travelers visiting Taiwan a week ago.

航空公司表示因為航班計畫調整,將提早停止到十月底前花蓮濟南間每週的包機。

The weekly charter flights were scheduled to continue between the two destinations every Saturday until late October, but the company said it will stop earlier due to “plan adjustments.”

過去幾年到花蓮旅遊人數持續下滑,而此次航班取消更會打擊花蓮觀光業。山東航空往花蓮的包機在中斷三年後,今年七月一日時恢復運行。平均來說每班包機乘載160名乘客。

This is a major blow to Hualien Tourism which has seen arrivals declining in recent years. Shandong Airlines resumed charter flights to Hualien on July 1 after a three-year hiatus with 160 passengers on each flight on average.

花蓮縣旅行商業同業公會理事長吳永昌表示,有十個航班受影響,他們正在與其他航空公司協商處理。

According to Hualien County Travel Agency Association Chairman Wu Yung-chang (吳永昌), ten flights will be affected so they are already talking with other airlines to deal with the situation.

吳表示,已經買機票的旅客可以選擇申請全額退費,或是從桃園國際機場飛往花蓮。

Wu said passengers who booked tickets will receive a full refund, but they will have to fly from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport if they want to travel to eastern Taiwan.
