US Accuses China of Blocking American Airlines from Entering China

  • The US government has accused China of making it impossible for airlines of the United States to resume services to China. They also went on to order 4 Chinese air carriers to file flight schedules with the US government. The Trump administration hasn’t yet imposed any restrictions on Chinese carriers, but the US Transportation Department briefly delayed a few Chinese charter flights earlier this week for not complying with notice requirements. The new US guidelines require 4 Chinese airlines (Air China, Hainan Airlines Holding Co, China Southern Airlines Co, and China Eastern Airlines Corp) and their subsidiaries to file schedules and other details of flights by May 27, 2020.
