US allows more China flights

The US will allow further direct flights with China, though they still remain well below pre-Covid levels

Feb 27, 2024

Washington will allow Chinese airlines to further increase their direct passenger flights to the United States, as it takes another step in gradually restoring aviation services that had been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and an air travel dispute between the two countries.

Key takeaways

  • From March 31, Chinese carriers will be able to fly 50 weekly round trips to and from the United States, up from 35 currently;
  • But even with the increase, it’s still only a fraction of the more than 150 weekly round trips allowed by each side before curbs were imposed in early 2020 due to the coronavirus;
  • The move marks the fifth time the US regulator has increased the quota granted to Chinese carriers following China’s post-covid reopening.
