 Delta announced the return of the first American airline in Shanghai to China


Due to the outbreak of the covid-19 epidemic in China at the end of January, delta announced on January 31 that it would suspend all scheduled passenger flights to China. With the continuous change of the epidemic situation, the suspension period has been extended since the end of April previously announced. However, with the better control of Chinas domestic epidemic situation, the market demand of the U.S. and Chinas routes to China has increased greatly, which coincides with the strict restrictions on the operation of international routes issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (hereinafter referred to as CAAC) in line with the overall national anti epidemic strategy, making it difficult for China and the U.S. airlines to obtain one ticket but once faced with the situation of capacity reduction or even flight interruption.

After several rounds of confrontation between the relevant departments of the two countries, the weekly flight volume is currently set at the scale of four shifts each week between China and the United States, and American Airlines are finally approved to reopen the Chinese route.

According to the information released by Delta, the Shanghai Seattle route will use Airbus a350-900 to carry out the flight, and delta promises to provide clean and safe travel services for passengers.

With the gradual return of economic and social activities to normal, we are very excited that Delta has successfully resumed flights between China and the United States. Connecting the world is deltas mission. We are always committed to delivering customers safely and safely to their destinations, especially in this critical period. At present, we are implementing unprecedented health and safety measures to ensure that customers feel more comfortable and safe during the whole journey. Said Huang Kang, President of delta Greater China and Singapore.

At present, the Civil Aviation Administration has introduced a circuit breaker mechanism for international routes, so that if airlines want to maintain the operation of routes, they must be more strict in the inspection and Quarantine of passengers and the safety protection work during the journey, so as to prevent the circuit breaker caused by the epidemic situation of the companys flight passengers.

To this end, delta said it would update the best safety practices in real time based on the advice of medical experts and customer feedback, and set up a global cleaning department to implement the air circulation system including electrostatic spray disinfection, installation of HEPA filter, adjustment of boarding process, streamlining of on-board services, locking of the middle seats and forcing passengers to wear them all the way Masks and other measures to ensure public health and safety during the travel. In addition to Delta, another U.S. airline, United Airlines, has been approved to resume regular passenger flights in China, and its latest flight plans should be announced soon. But on June 19, the U.S. Department of transportation still rejected Chinas application to further increase the number of weekly flights, insisting on maintaining the current plan of four flights each. At present, several domestic airlines have announced their flight plans for July, including the plans of American routes such as Beijing Los Angeles of Air China, Guangzhou Los Angeles of China Southern Airlines and Shanghai New York of China Eastern Airlines.
