The Taoxian International Airport in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's
Liaoning Province will reopen to international flights on July 5.
Air travel from Shenyang to many countries was suspended in late April due to
the outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in China.
In response to the World Health Organization's removal of its travel advisory
against the SARS-affected areas in China, airline companies of Russia, Japan and
the Republic of Korea (ROK) have gradually re-established flights to China since
Airport officials said that flights from Shenyang to Osaka, a city of
southern Honshu of Japan, resumed Tuesday. The flights, twice every week, are on
Wednesdays and Saturdays.
In addition, from July 5, flights from Shenyang to Pushan City, in the ROK,
will resume every Tuesday and Saturday.
