The Airlines Halting China Flights as Virus Outbreak Spreads

"The coronavirus outbreak has disrupted flights to and from China, one of the world’s busiest travel markets, as airlines around the globe halt service.

Commercial flights to and from Wuhan, where the virus is centered, have mostly stopped. Cancellations have spread to major hubs in Beijing and Shanghai. Carriers from British Airways to Singapore Airlines to United Airlines have suspended flights to China’s biggest cities.

Governments are also cracking down on the entry of non-citizens who have recently traveled to China. The U.S. is temporarily barring foreign nationals who have visited China unless they are immediate relatives of American citizens or permanent residents. Only seven U.S. airports were receiving flights from China as of Feb. 3, 2020.
