Coronavirus: Delta, American, United Airlines Suspend China Flights


Coronavirus Has Caused Delta, American Airlines and United Airlines to Suspend Flights to and from China.

Delta is suspending all flights to and from China effective February 6-April 30, 2020, with the last flight from the U.S. to China on February 3, and the last flight from China to the U.S. on February 5.

American Airlines, whose pilots' union sued January 30 to immediately stop AA's flights to and from China, is cancelling its China flights with immediate effect, instead of waiting until February 9, 2020 to cancel flights, as AA had previously announced.

United is suspending all flights to and from China between February 6 to March 28, 2020. See our Coronavirus Travel Waiver Policies post if you have an airline ticket that you'll need to change or cancel.

Currently there are over 9770 known cases of infection, of which over 9650 are in mainland China, and over 210 people have died, all of them in China. The World Health Organization has designated the new coronavirus, 2019-nCoV as a global health emergency. Meanwhile, over 15 million Americans have been infected this flu season by influenza, of which over 8200 people have died.
