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.
