U.S. Department of Transportation

The U.S. Department of Transportation will allow Chinese airlines to operate 50 round trips of scheduled passenger flights per week, starting from March 31.

Since November 9, 2023, permission had been granted for 35 round trips per week. The operation was allowed for Air China, Beijing Capital Airlines, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, and Xiamen Airlines, and they are required to submit flight schedule proposals.

It is designated for the Chinese airlines to operate, and the U.S. Department of Transportation states that maintaining a competitive balance and fair and equal opportunities between airlines from both countries is the top priority, aiming to improve the environment so that airlines from both countries can fully exercise their bilateral rights, marking it as “an important step towards further normalization of the U.S.-China market.”
