According to China’s civil aviation regulator, there are several China-bound flights to be suspended in recent days. Today we will share the updates in order to help you plan your travel in advance.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) Wednesday issued “circuit breaker” directives on several international airlines’ flights to China as some passengers on these flights have been tested positive for coronavirus.
The involved airlines include Air France, Indonesia Sriwijaya Air, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Pakistan International Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Air China, China Southern Airlines, and Xiamen Airlines.
Starting from November 23, several flights from the above-mentioned airlines will be temporarily suspended or canceled. Here is the detailed list:
Based on the earlier “reward and circuit breaker mechanism”, airlines must suspend flights on a route for one week if five passengers test positive for coronavirus. If the number exceeds 10, the airline must suspend the flights for four weeks.
The quota for the above-mentioned flights shall not be used for other routes. In addition, the flights from Air France, Indonesia Sriwijaya Air, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Pakistan International Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Air China, China Southern Airlines and Xiamen Airlines can continue to operate up to Nov 23.
If a flight triggers the circuit breaker mechanism during this period, the suspension times will accumulate.
If you have bought the tickets for the involved flight during the suspension period, please contact the airline to change the flight as soon as possible.
