LONDON, Dec 14 (FAM) – The United Kingdom and China have agreed to raise the limit on the number of direct weekly flights between the two nations to 150 from 100. The UK government said the move was the first of several “open skies” deals struck in an effort to increase trade post-Brexit.
The deal follows an agreement in October 2016 to raise the limit from 40 to 100.
Such services are regulated internationally, typically through bilateral agreements that limit the number and type of flights.
