Pretty sure United has too now. Not positive though, but might want to update

Air Canada as well has suspended flights to China. And the companies shares have dropped some like 10% since jan 20th when it was confirmed that a flight from China had an infected passenger.

They cancelled select flights, but there was a separate thread so I excluded it

Ahh Gocha.

Ok super dumb question. I have a package arriving via Fedex, and the package is still in China in some warehouse, probably to fly here within the next few days. Do you think it’s safe to say it’ll make it to the states? Or do you think fedex will cancel flights soon…

It should be able to continue. I don’t think FedEx is planning on suspending anytime soon. They’re even helping ship medical supplies throughout China.

KLM also suspended their flights but will only fly daily to Shanghai…

I think they’re only suspending Chengdu, Xiamen and Hangzhou and will reduce Shanghai from 11 weekly to 7 weekly. Interestingly, they’ll continue to fly to Beijing.


Got the information from this source… I also looked for flights to China from Amsterdam and they all only went to Pundong Int’l airport.

Yeah, that says all seven weekly flights to Beijing will continue as planned while PVG reduces and CTU, HGH, and XMN are suspended.

Oh wow that’s really interesting. I guess we can’t just completely cut off people living in China. Thank you!

Very interesting!

I feel very strongly that a domino effect is incoming. More and more airlines are gonna withdraw as the outbreak is only getting worse. That’s pretty tough as China is needed for so many things

Delta has announced it will reduce China flights from 42 weekly frequencies to 21 weekly frequencies from February 6 to April 30.

No routes will actually be cut. They’ll go from daily to 3-4x weekly.

People are beginning to experience package delays.
