Delta Air Lines said had received permission from the Chinese government  to restart its service to Shanghai from both Seattle and Detroit, with two weekly flights from each hub.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China said Monday it would allow U.S. airlines to operate four weekly flights to the country.  In addition, the provincial Shanghai government gave Delta permission to restart its service to Shanghai.

Under the agreement with Chinese authorities, the airline will be required to take passengers’ temperatures prior to departure.

Delta said it plans to resume flights to Shaghai on June 18, 2020.  It also plans to restart non-stop service from Los Angeles to Sydney this summer.
