CHINA LIFT BAN ON INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS

The Chinese Government has said it will ease Corona Virus restrictions to allow more foreign carriers.

This is coming shortly after the US vowed to suspend Chinese passenger planes from flying into the country due to Beijing’s curbs on American airlines.

However, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in a statement on Thursday, said qualifying foreign carriers currently barred from operating flights to China will be allowed once-a-week flights into a city of their choice, with effect from June 8.

Recall that the Chinese Government had suspended the entry of foreigners with valid Chinese visas or residence permits since late March, which means that only Chinese nationals can travel back to the country on commercial passenger flights.
