China Airline to resume services India

Shanghai: Chinese freight carrier Great Wall Airlines said Wednesday that it has been cleared to resume services after the U.S. Treasury Department removed it from a list of companies accused of helping Iran acquire weapons of mass destruction.
The airline said it successfully appealed to have its name removed from the list.
"We expect to resume services soon," Tan Kai Ping, the company's president, said in a statement released Wednesday.
He said the company would resume cargo services to Amsterdam; Incheon, South Korea; and Mumbai, India, and was considering expanding beyond those routes.
The Shanghai-based airline, a Singaporean-Chinese joint venture, was launched in June.
