The list of airlines and flights that got the directives is as follows. If you’ve planned to fly to China in recent days and bought the tickets for the involved flights, please contact the airlines as soon as possible.
On April 19, CAAC issued the circuit breaker directives on two flights. Air China’s flight CA946 and Sriwijaya Air’s flight SJ3184 will be suspended for two weeks from April 26.

According to the notice issued on April 25, CAAC issued the directives on four flights and cancelled a reward flight. Air China’s flight CA942, China Southern Airlines’ flight CZ3056 and Shenzhen Airlines’ flight ZH9052 will be suspended for two weeks from April 26. Shenzhen Airlines’ flight ZH8058 will also be suspended since it is a reward flight of ZH9052.
