China's Civil Aviation Authority has invited all airlines to review health regulations, establish emergency quarantine zones on aircraft, and limit passenger capacity on international flights, in order to combat the risk of outside Covid-19 incidents.
Regarding international cargo flights, it was emphasized that air companies should keep the disinfection processes of the aircraft even more tight and create a special delivery process when it comes to high risk loads.
