It is reported that China’s civil aviation regulator issued “circuit breaker” orders on two China-bound flights. One of them will be suspended for 5 weeks starting from next Monday. Let’s check the details.
In early June, China eased restrictions on international passenger flights contingent on epidemic risks being under control. Authorities highlighted the “reward and circuit breaker mechanism” for the carriers to increase or have flights suspended in accordance with the companies’ epidemic control work.
Under the policy, airlines must suspend flights on a route for a week if five passengers test positive for coronavirus. If the number exceeds 10, the airline must suspend the flights for four weeks.
There are two international flights to be suspended in the next few days, let’s check.
China Southern Airlines’ Guangzhou-Amsterdam (in the Netherlands) international passenger route has been suspended for one week from October 19, in line with the “circuit-breaker” directive of China’s civil aviation regulator, according to the carrier’s official WeChat account.
Under the directive, the flights CZ307/308 on October 20 and 23 will be canceled, as well as those Wednesday flights from October 28.
The air route will resume weekly operation every Friday after the suspension expires. Previously, the aviation company offers bi-weekly passenger services between the two cities.
For epidemic concerns, the airlines also announced the suspension of its transfer service for some groups of China-bound passengers, including:
China’s civil aviation regulator ordered on Tuesday a five-week suspension of an Ethiopian Airlines flight from Addis Ababa to Shanghai in an effort to prevent imported COVID-19 cases.
A total of five passengers on the Oct 6 flight from Ethiopia’s capital to Shanghai, as well as 10 passengers on its Oct 13 flight, tested positive for the novel coronavirus, meeting the conditions for a “circuit breaker” suspension of the flight route, according to the Civil Aviation Administration of China.
In keeping with an international flights adjustment policy announced on June 4, the administration issued its “circuit breaker” directive and announced the five-week suspension would begin on Monday.
