3 June 2020 (teleSUR)* — The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) announced that all regular flights by Chinese civilian airlines to and from the United States will be suspended beginning June 16.

“Responding to the failure of the Government of the People’s Republic of China to permit U.S. carriers to exercise the full extent of their bilateral right to conduct scheduled passenger air services to and from China, is suspending the scheduled passenger operations of all Chinese carriers to and from the United States,” the DOT stated.

President Donald Trump administration’s decision affects Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, Sichuan Airlines, and Xiamen Airlines.

On March 26, as part of its measures to prevent new imported COVID-19 cases, China issued regulations that reduced foreign flights to one a week per country.​​​​​​​

UNITY?!? Your dear leader is working hard to divide this country. You support Trump, you enable Trump, you acquitted Trump, you’re behind Tump 100%. Trump has screwed the farmers of America for 3 1/2 years with his useless trade wars. Now he is urging war amongst our citizens.

Later, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines pressed China to recover their routes without success because the Chinese authorities have not approved the resumption of operations.

According to the U.S. government, however, this decision violates a 1980 bilateral agreement that establishes the right for companies to operate different services in their territories.​​​​​​​

“U.S. carriers have asked to resume passenger service, beginning June 1. The Chinese government’s failure to approve their requests is a violation of our Air Transport Agreement,” the DOT argued, as reported by 1470 WJDJ.​​​​​​​
