The international flights have been resumed by Oman on Monday— starting on October 1, local News Agency reported.

According to the details, the country had suspended the operation of international flights in March as part of COVID-19 precautionary measures.

The announcement regarding the resumption of international flights comes after a meeting of a high-level committee to discuss the latest developments with regard to the coronavirus in the Sultanate.

“Flights will be scheduled according to health data for specific destinations and according to bilateral agreements with other airlines,” the report said.

On September 2, China has also announced resumption of direct international flights, that started from Thursday September 3.

But travellers arrived in China have been subjected to centralised quarantine for 14 days since their arrival and have to take two coronavirus tests, a Beijing city official had told.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) had told that in order to contain the cross-border spread of the global pandemic, it would impose stricter anti-COVID-19 prevention measures based on an existing “circuit breaker” mechanism.
