Biden administration suspends 44 flights by Chinese airlines

The Transportation Department said on Friday that it is suspending 44 China-bound flights conducted by the country's airlines after the Chinese government canceled dozens of flights from American carriers. DOT said that the Chinese government's actions "are adverse to the public interest and warrant proportionate remedial action by the Department." Its "unilateral actions against the named U.S. carriers are inconsistent with the provisions of the agreement and are premised on circumstances wholly outside of the carriers’ control," the department added, referring to a U.S.-China bilateral agreement.
