U.S. and China to Allow Carriers to Fly 4 Weekly Flights

The United States and China have agreed to allow carriers to fly four weekly flights between the two countries. The U.S. Transportation Department made the announcement earlier this week.

Since March, Chinese government policy had blocked U.S. air carriers from resuming passenger service between the United States and China, while Chinese air carriers continued to fly between the two countries. The United States responded with an order that would limit Chinese air carriers to the total number of flights U.S. air carriers were allowed to fly. That order would go into effect this week.

The U.S. Department of Transportation was notified Monday that U.S. carriers have been approved to fly 4 weekly flights to China. So in response, “the Department amended its order to allow the Chinese air carriers to continue to fly 4 weekly flights between China and the United States,” the press release says.

The Transportation Department said it will continue to press for the full restoration of passenger air travel between the United States and China.

New Coronavirus Cases in China

The situation could get complicated once again as a small surge in coronavirus cases was discovered in recent days. Chinese authorities have canceled more than 60% of flights to the Chinese capital as 100 new cases were detected in Beijing. Number reported by the Chinese government show that the city went nearly two months without any new infections.

The news about the new cases came just one day China granted approval for U.S. airlines to resume flights to China to the country, Forbes reports.
