China drastically reduces international flights in move to curb imported coronavirus cases
The Civil Aviation Administration of China announced Thursday that it will drastically cut its international flight routes in an effort to contain the growing number of imported Covid-19 cases.
The body issued a notice on Thursday.
“Each Chinese airline is only allowed to maintain one route to any specific country with no more than one flight per week,” it reads, while “each foreign airline is only allowed to maintain one route to China with no more than one weekly flight.”
The announcement comes after a spike in imported coronavirus cases in the country this week, prompting the authorities to implement new controls to prevent a resurgence of infections.
