The Department of Transportation (DOT) announced on June 5, 2020, that it will permit Chinese air carriers, as a whole, the right to operate two weekly passenger flights to the United States, effective immediately.

DOT said it reversed its June 3, 2020, regulatory action to ban Chinese flights after the Civil Aviation Authority of China responded on June 4 by revising its restrictions to allow U.S. carriers the ability to operate one flight per week each to China. “As a result of China’s willingness to permit U.S. carriers the opportunity to operate one weekly passenger flight each, [DOT] revised its June 3rd order today.”
