Nanjing Lukou International Airport, in east China’s Jiangsu Province, reopened on Thursday morning after a closure of nearly one month as a result of the COVID-19 virus.

Flight MU2923 from the airport to the city of Qingdao, Shandong Province, took off at around 10:16 a.m. Thursday, making it the first passenger plane that resumed operation after a COVID-19 resurgence at the airport.

Nanjing cleared all medium and high-risk areas for COVID-19 on August 19, a month after local authorities had canceled all flights at the airport towards the end of July.
