US flights cut by Air China as coronavirus epidemic increases

The Chinese state airline Air China has become the lastest international air carrier to axe flights between China and the US in recent days because of the ongoing coronavirus epidemic.

The airline confirmed on Saturday that it will temporarily adjust its flight schedule between China and Washington and Los Angeles. The airline has cancelled the flights between Beijing and Washington, and Shenzhen and Los Angeles.

The news comes despite China’s civil aviation authority last week urging airlines to continue operating its international routes after reports that over 25,000 domestic and international flights had been axed since the coronavirus epidemic started.
