US carriers have objected to China's plan to ease its ban on foreign airlines a course-change that came a day after the Trump administration issued its own limit on Chinese flights, reports Bloomberg.

'While the Chinese response to the Department of Transportation is a step toward parity for US carriers, more is needed to achieve the goals of the agreement,' the trade group Airlines for America (AfA) said.



Flights between the two countries are governed by an agreement signed in 1980. The US Transportation Department said it is reviewing China's response to determine if it needs to take additional action, said AfA spokesman Andy Post.



China's Civil Aviation Administration then announced that foreign airlines excluded from an earlier pact will be able to operate one commercial passenger flight to China a week.



China's CC didn't name any countries or carriers, but the move opens up a chance for US airlines to return for the first time in four months.
