China will allow some international flights to Beijing to resume from September 3.
State broadcaster CCTV made this known on Wednesday.
Flights were suspended since March 23 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Flights from eight of the countries with fewer COVID-19 cases will be allowed to land.
They are Austria, Cambodia, Canada, Denmark, Greece, Pakistan, Sweden and Thailand.
The first flight will arrive in Beijing from Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh.
Coronavirus broke out in Wuhan, China, in late 2019.
There have been 26 million cases globally and 860,000 deaths.
