According to the arrangement made by the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council, from December 16, Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) will adjust the “circuit breaker measures” concerning international passenger flights to further consolidate efforts in preventing COVID-19 cases from being imported into China.
If 5 to 9 arriving passengers flying the same flight and same route operated by an airline are found positive in their nucleic acid tests after arrival, the airline’s operation on that specific route shall be suspended for 2 weeks.
If 10 or over 10 passengers test positive after arrival, the airline’s operation on the route shall be suspended for 4 weeks.
The quota of the flight involved in a “circuit breaker” cannot be transferred onto other routes. Airlines can resume its one weekly flight schedule after the “circuit breaker” period ends.
