More international flights are expected to return as travel restrictions and COVID-19 prevention protocols are adjusted, according to China’s three major airlines.

From October 30th to March 25th, Air China will operate 52 international routes, while China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines will operate 42 routes each.

Air China, China’s flag carrier, will operate 132 international flights every week, resuming routes such as Beijing-Singapore, Hangzhou-Rome and Chongqing-Dubai.

The company will also offer new international routes, including Beijing-Johannesburg-Chengdu, Chongqing-Budapest and Chongqing-Ho Chi Minh City.

While the COVID-19 outbreak is still impacting passenger markets in various regions, coordinated precautionary measures have mitigated the negative impact on travel and reduced the number of passengers adapting to travel under infection control protocols. It is on the rise, said Huang Bin, senior management team member of Air China. .

As epidemic policies continue to be optimized, market confidence is restored as more people are willing to travel by air, he added.

Chen Weihua, chief legal counsel of China Southern Airlines, said more new international flights from Guangzhou to Europe and Southeast Asia have been added. The next step is to add more routes from Guangzhou to North America.

Li Yangmin, general manager of China Eastern Airlines, said the recently upgraded anti-epidemic measures are good news for the resumption of the civil aviation sector.

“The lifting of the ‘circuit breaker’ mechanism will have direct economic benefits for businesses. Easier testing, optimized epidemic control standards and shortened quarantine times will reduce travel uncertainty. We will reduce it and boost the reopening of the sector,” he said.

This month, China rolled out 20 measures to upgrade its epidemic control, including lifting its “circuit breaker” policy. This includes suspending airline operations for two weeks if more than five passengers arrive in China, and for four weeks if more than 10. Passengers tested positive.

Inbound travelers are also subject to shorter quarantines and easier testing.

This measure reduces COVID-19 quarantine for entering travelers and close contacts from 10 days to 8 days, and requires entering travelers to have a negative nucleic acid test result performed up to 48 hours prior to boarding. You are asked to provide one instead of one.

According to the Civil Aviation Administration of China, more international flights will be arranged during this period, with 840 inbound and outbound flights per week, more than double the same period last year.
