Most flights from the United States to Shanghai have been suspended by China's civil aviation regulator as over 50 passengers on these flights have tested positive since the end of 2021 at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

Five flights to Shanghai operated by the US Delta, United and American airlines, as well as China Eastern Airlines, have been put on hold by two to four weeks beginning next week.

Delta Air Lines Flight DL287 from Seattle to Shanghai will be suspended through the end of February, as 6 on the flight tested positive at the Pudong airport on January 1, while another 11 on the same flight tested positive on January 6.

American Airlines Flight AA127 will be put on hold for four weeks beginning January 24 after 10 passengers tested positive upon arrival at Pudong Airport on December 31.

China Eastern's MU588 from New York to Shanghai and United Airlines Flight UA857 from San Francisco to Shanghai, will be suspended for two weeks beginning next week.

Based on the suspension mechanism launched by CAAC in 2020, if the number of passengers testing positive reaches 5, the flight suspension will be extended from 1 week to 2 weeks. If 10 got infected, the suspension will last for 4 weeks.

The airline could increase its inbound flight to 2 per week if no passenger tests positive 3 weeks in a row.
