This is a part of the deals reached during Ms. Wu Yi and Mr. Paulson’s talk today. Here is an excerpt from MSN.
“Under the agreement announced Wednesday, starting this year, U.S. carriers will be able to operate 13 new daily flights to China within five years. One new flight will be awarded this year and one in 2008, four new flights will be awarded in 2009, three more in 2010, and two each in 2011 and 2012.”
