BEIJING (Reuters) – China mentioned on Monday it opposes all U.S. restrictions imposed in opposition to Chinese airlines, responding to a report that the U.S. Transportation Department has demanded Chinese carriers file their schedules and different flight particulars by May 27.
Chinese overseas ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian mentioned flight restrictions imposed by Beijing handled all airlines equally and had been as a consequence of efforts to curb COVID-19 associated dangers.
The U.S. authorities late on Friday accused the Chinese authorities of constructing it unattainable for U.S. airlines to renew service to China.
