Air China CA746 carrying passengers from Pnom Penh, Cambodia, landed at Beijing Capital International Airport at 6:57 a.m. Thursday, marking the first international flight flying to the airport since the Civil Aviation Administration of China announced the resumption of international flights to the city. 


Passengers were tested for COVID-19 in a designated section at the airport after going through customs clearance and inspection upon arrival.


"As soon as the plane landed, customs officers boarded the cabin and carried out inspection," said Zhang Gong, a customs officer at the airport. 


"Passengers were required to declare their health status and medication history, so that we could know whether there were any people having symptoms or abnormal conditions upon their arrival."


After boarding inspection, cleaning and sanitary work in the passenger and cargo cabins of the plane was conducted.


It took only 62 minutes for Beijing Customs to complete entry quarantine and investigation on the passengers and crew members. All laboratory nucleic acid testing was completed at noon of the same day.


Beijing will gradually resume direct inbound flights to the city from eight countries starting from Thursday, the municipal government announced Wednesday.


The countries include Cambodia, Greece, Denmark, Thailand, Pakistan, Austria, Canada, and Sweden. All the eight countries pose low risks of cross-border infection and conduct nucleic acid tests for passengers at places of origin.
