New Chinese policy will allow all foreign airlines to select a destination (from a list of approved cities) for one international commercial flight per week.
If passengers on a flight test negative for coronavirus for three consecutive weeks, the airline may add another departure a week, the aviation department said. If five or more passengers test positive for the virus, the airline will be forced to suspend flights for seven days.
The list of available settlements includes 37 cities. These include Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Chengdu.
