Beijing Will Be Gradually Open to Direct Flights for International Passengers

2020/09/04

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) announced on 2 September that while ensuring strict prevention and control measures and preventing the risk of case importation, Beijing will be gradually open to direct international passenger flights since 3 September. Such flights had previously been diverted to designated first points of entry outside Beijing.

To prevent the risk of case importation into the capital, starting from 23 March, all international passenger flights entering Beijing had been diverted to designated first points of entry. Only passengers who passed quarantine inspection could fly to Beijing on the original flight. As of 1 September, 511 international passenger flights had been thus diverted. Now under regularized COVID-19 containment, the international flights will gradually be allowed to fly directly to Beijing.

Based on the nucleic acid testing results at the departure points of relevant flights, starting from September 3, direct flights to Beijing will be resumed for eight countries that have brought fewer imported cases, namely Thailand, Cambodia, Pakistan, Greece, Denmark, Austria, Sweden, and Canada. The first direct flight was an Air China flight from Phnom Penh, Cambodia to Beijing on 3 September.
