BISHKEK, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Regular flights between China and Kyrgyzstan were resumed Tuesday with the launch of Urumqi-Bishkek-Urumqi flights, the Chinese embassy in Kyrgyzstan said.

A plane from Urumqi, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China, landed at the Manas International Airport on Tuesday, at 1:48 p.m. local time (0748 GMT). The return flight departed from Bishkek at 3:45 p.m.

The flights were the first after the suspension of direct flights between China and Kyrgyzstan due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the embassy said.

Flights on the Urumqi-Bishkek-Urumqi route are operated by China Southern Airlines and the schedule will be once in two weeks.
