KLM Royal Dutch Airlines resumed passenger flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Shanghai on Wednesday following the relaxation of travel restrictions by the Chinese government.

These flights are in addition to a cargo airlift which started on April 20 for the transport of medical supplies.

Flights to the Chinese mainland were restricted at the beginning of February in connection with COVID-19. KLM now operates one flight per week to Shanghai, and makes a stop in Seoul on both outbound and inbound flights.

Apart from KLM, other foreign carriers such as Air New Zealand, Delta, United Airlines, Air France, Lufthansa, Swissair, Aeroflot and Turkish Airlines have also resumed flights to Shanghai.

Finnair restored flights between Helsinki and Shanghai on Thursday.

Nucleic acid tests must be completed within five days of embarkation, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said on its website. Tests should be conducted at facilities designated or recognized by Chinese embassies in host countries, it said.
