In recent days, China’s Civil Aviation Administration (CAAC) has issued circuit breaker directives on 6 China-bound flights. The authority has tightened the measures last month and now the involved-flights are required to be suspended for at least 2 weeks.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has 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 domestic and overseas airlines include Air China, EgyptAir, Pakistan International Airlines, Turkish Airlines and Sichuan Airlines.
The list of airlines and flights that got the directives is as follows. If you’ve planned to fly to China this month and bought the tickets for the involved flights, please contact the airlines as soon as possible:
On Jan 12, CAAC issued the “circuit breaker” directives on Air China’s flight CA868 and PIA’s flight PK854.
On Jan 14, CAAC issued four “circuit breaker” directives, respectively on Turkish Airlines’ flight TK72, EgyptAir’s flight MS958, China Air’s flight CA946, Sichuan Airlines’ flight 3U8392.
On Jan 18, CAAC issued one more directive on Turkish Airlines’ flight TK72.
Flight 3U8392of Sichuan Airlines will be suspended from Jan 25, while others of the above-mentioned flights will be suspended from Jan 18.
Last month, we’ve posted an article saying that China adjusted measures for international flights. The circuit breaker measures have been further tightened amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the notice, if there are five passengers on a flight who test positive, the airline’s flights will be suspended for two weeks. The suspension will last for four weeks if 10 passengers test positive.
Remember, 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.
