U.S. will limit some Chinese passenger air carriers to 40% capacity

The U.S. order said the department will limit over a four-week period.

The U.S. Transportation Department on Wednesday said it will limit some flights from Chinese carriers to 40% passenger capacity for four weeks after the Chinese government imposed similar limits on four United Airlines flights.

China told United Airlines on August 6 it was imposing sanctions after it alleged five passengers who traveled from San Francisco to Shanghai tested positive for COVID-19 on July 21.

The U.S. order said the department will limit over a four-week period each of four Chinese carriers to 40% capacity on a single China-U.S. flight.

United Airlines said it was "pleased to see this action by the (Transportation Department) in pursuit of fairness in this important market."

The Chinese embassy in Washington did not immediately comment.
