The Trump administration on Friday scrapped a plan to ban Chinese passenger airlines from flying to the U.S. after officials there said foreign airlines can fly to China.

The new order, however, limits Chinese carriers to two weekly flights to the U.S., which the Department of Transportation said is needed “to restore a competitive balance and fair and equal opportunity among U.S. and Chinese air carriers in the scheduled passenger service marketplace.”
