China eases international flight restrictions.

Updated: Dec 29, 2020

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) will allow more foreign carriers to fly into Mainland China. From 8th June, foreign airlines which were previously not allowed to operate to China will now be able to do so, but can only operate one flight a week to a Chinese city of their choosing.

While the CAAC did not explicitly state which carriers will be able to benefit from the new easing of restrictions, it is understood that the move will benefit US carriers, which have so far not been able to operate flights to China. the CAAC has rolled out an incentive scheme for foreign carriers:

  • airlines will be allowed to increase the number of flights per week to two if there are no incoming passengers testing positive for the coronavirus for three consecutive weeks.

  • If an airline was found to have carried up to five passengers who test positive, they will have to suspend their operations into China for a week, before being allowed to restart flights. If there are 10 passengers, that carrier will suspend operations for a month.
