Update: More Airlines Suspend China Flights

Alexander Sehmer of Assynt, a risk consultancy, said commercial rather than public health concerns were motivating the decisions. “The simple fact is that there is little-to-no demand to fly to either Shanghai or Beijing at this moment in time.”

How quickly flights are resumed is largely dependent on how the coronavirus is contained. This will affect the official Government advice and ultimately, demand to travel to mainland China.
