Shares of those carriers dropped 1.6% and 1.4%, respectively, in mainland trading yesterday. Both airlines are controlled by the Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (Sasac), the same entity that rules over four of the companies that disclosed their US-exit plans last week, he said.
The carriers are among the Chinese companies identified by the US Securities and Exchange Commission as potentially facing delisting at the deadline, he added.
