The U.S. Department of transportation did not immediately comment.
The order will come into force on June 16, or ahead of schedule, with Air China, China Eastern, China Southern and Xiamen Airlines affected.
Among the three major US airlines, Delta and United hope to go back to China this month. According to previous orders from the U.S. Department of transportation, Delta has applied to operate daily flights from Detroit and Seattle to Shanghai Pudong Airport, while United Airlines has applied to daily flights from San Francisco and Newark Airport near New York to Shanghai Pudong Airport, as well as flights to and from jiujinshan and Beijing.
However, CAAC did not reply at that time.
As far as I know, CAAC and the U.S. Department of transportation have been maintaining close communication on the flight arrangements between the two countries, and the two sides have already made some progress. China has also announced relevant policy adjustments. We hope that the US side will not create obstacles for both sides to solve the problem.
