China Southern Airlines has filed an application to start Shenyang-Los Angeles flights, while Capital Airlines is seeking rights for two routes to Jeju.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) states that China Southern plans to operate thrice-weekly on the Shenyang-Los Angeles route starting in November using Airbus A330s, Boeing 777s or 787s.
If approved, FlightGlobal schedules data shows that it will be the only operator on that route.
Capital Airlines, meanwhile, has applied to operate twice-weekly Hangzhou-Jeju and thrice-weekly Qingdao-Jeju services from October. Both routes would be operated with A320 family aircraft.
It will be the sole carrier on the Qingdao-Jeju route, and will compete with Spring Airlines on Hangzhou-Jeju.
The CAAC has called on parties with comments to file their submissions by 19 July.
