Flights between Mongolia and China to resumeSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Relevant organizations of Mongolia and China have reached an agreement to open the air border between the two countries and resume regular flights.
In particular, flights to the cities of Guangzhou and Hohhot in China will begin to be conducted starting from July 4 and 5.
Due to the pandemic, flights between the two countries were halted on January 27, 2020. Based on the talks that were held between the two sides, the side of China informed that it is possible to conduct weekly flights to its cities with the exception of Shanghai and Beijing.
Earlier this month, the Cabinet made a decision to allow MIAT Mongolian Airlines and Aero Mongolia companies to conduct weekly flights to Guangzhou and Hohhot respectively. While Mongolian aviation companies will be conducting the flights for one week, Chinese aviation companies will be in charge of the next.
The passengers are required to be isolated for 5 days prior to the flight and 14 days after their arrival in China. If more than five passengers show signs of COVID-19, the flight may be canceled.
The frequency of flights to China will increase in the future when the COVID-19 situation in China subsides.
