China slaps bans on airlines after Covid-19 breaches


Chinese aviation regulators have suspended three airlines after positive Covid-19 cases were found in passengers on their flights.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China said there were six positive cases each on inbound Shanghai flights operated by Etihad Airways and China Eastern Airways.

A SriLankan Airlines service from Colombo to Shanghai carried 23 positive cases.

All flights took place in the first week of August.

Shanghai flights from overseas by Etihad and China Eastern have been suspended for one week, while SriLankan was hit with a four-week ban for having more than 10 passengers who transgressed.
