Air China suspends Beijing-Hawaii air route

The development comes in the backdrop of an escalating trade wat with the United States.

In a development that marks China once again resorting to using tourism as a weapon in the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, Air China, Beijing’s flagship carrier, stated on Tuesday that it will suspend Beijing-Hawaii route starting from August 27 due to changes in capacity arrangements.

In 2017, China had banned travel agencies from selling package tours to South Korea as a reaction of Seoul allowing the deployment of a US missile defense system.

China has also banned individual tourism in Taiwan, in what the self-ruled island nation described as a move aimed at manipulating its presidential elections in January 2020.

Passengers of Air China who have purchased tickets for travel after that date will receive a full refund, said the airlines in a statement.
