China Airlines and Local Hospitals to Promote Health Travel in Taiwan

China Airlines and Local Hospitals to Promote Health Travel in Taiwan

Thursday March 15, 2012

Taiwan's biggest carrier and several hospitals will sign a memorandum of understanding to promote health care travel in Taiwan, according to Taiwan's trade promotion body.

In order to take advantage of the growing Free Independent Traveler (FIT) program between Taiwan and China, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council decided to link in medical tourism and promote high-end medical tour packages.

There will be only three hospitals involved in the first stage, including the Taipei-based Shin Kong Medical Club, the Chang Bing Show Chwan Memorial Hospital in central Taiwan and Kaohsiung-based E-Da Hospital.

Meanwhile, China Airlines, which provides over 100 round-trip flights a week between 26 cities in China and three cities in Taiwan, is the top carrier choice, the council said.

The strategic alliance between different business sectors will be "a breakthrough to promote Taiwan's international medical care," it added.

The FIT program, which kicked off last June, now allows up to 1,000 people from 11 cities to visit Taiwan per day without having to be part of a tour group.

According to statistics compiled by the National Immigration Agency, a total of 30,281 Chinese visitors came to Taiwan through the FIT program from June to December last year.
