The US Government will allow Chinese airlines four flights a week into its airports, an expansion following China's announcement it would permit the same number of operations by the Americans, reports Bloomberg.

After weeks of diplomatic wrangling on passenger flights between the two nations, the US Transportation Department has issued an order that doubles the number of operations permitted to and from the US by China-based carriers.



The US had earlier threated to cut off all flights from China if the Beijing government didn't stop blocking American carriers. Three US airlines, which had halted flights to China earlier this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, wanted to resume service. But both sides have only gradually expanded the number of flights.



Earlier this month, the Transportation Department accused the Civil Aviation Authority of China of being 'unable to communicate definitively' when it would allow US airlines to resume flights.



Delta plans to start flights to Shanghai from Seattle and Detroit. United had sought to resume three routes to China this month. American Airlines said it wants to begin flying again to China later in the year.
