Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks on Flights between China and Britain
2020/12/24

Q: It is reported that another coronavirus variant has been detected in the United Kingdom and that many countries have imposed restrictions on British travelers and flights. What are China's considerations on this matter?

A: The United Kingdom recently announced the finding of a new coronavirus variant and notified the World Health Organization. Many countries have closed their borders to the United Kingdom, stopped round flights and banned British flights from entering.

Considering the special features and possible impacts of the new virus variant, the Chinese side, after comprehensive assessment, is thinking of borrowing from other countries' practice and suspending flights between China and Britain to ensure the health of Chinese and foreign travelers. We will follow the situation closely and adjust our measures according to the latest developments.
