Chinese Airlines Cutting Flights Amid ‘Exercises’: CCTV

Airlines have been ordered to cut a quarter of their flights at a dozen Chinese airports, including two of the country’s busiest in Shanghai, to accommodate four weeks of “high frequency exercises,” state media reported.

Shanghai’s Pudong and Hongqiao international airports were among 12 airports largely along the country’s east coast affected by the order, which began July 20 and would last until August 15, state broadcaster China Central Television reported on the microblog of its financial channel today. The post later appeared to have been deleted.
