These Major Airlines Are Planning To Resume International Travel To China In June
As China gets back to a sense of normalcy after COVID-19, airlines are planning to resume international flights to mainland Chinese cities.
Starting in June, Asiana Airlines, Korean Air, Qatar Airways, and United Airlines will be planning to schedule flights to China.
China has had restricted international passenger flights since June and international airlines have only been allowed to fly into the country once a week.
According to Forbes, United Airlines sent a memo to its employees saying, “We continue to work out the feasibility of restarting passenger service to China.” The airline is planning to resume international passenger flights to three Chinese cities, Beijing, Chengdu, and Shanghai.
South Korean based airline Asiana is planning to resume all of its 12 routes to Beijing and Shanghai in June. Beijing will require international passengers to land at a nearby airport first to complete a health check outside of the city of Beijing. China also will require a 14-day quarantine for all international travelers.
Qatar Airways is anticipating resuming flights to Beijing, Guangzhou, and Shanghai before the end of June.
Despite airlines’ plans, China has not yet announced an easing of it’s travel policy.
