Air Canada’s suspension of flights to China extended to March 27

Air Canada announced that it is extending the suspension of its flights between Canada and Beijing and Shanghai until March 27, 2020 [subject to government approval]. Services to Beijing and Shanghai were initially suspended for the month of February following the Government of Canada’s January 29, 2020 advisory discouraging non-essential travel to China.

Additionally, from March 1-27, 2020, Air Canada will temporarily suspend its daily non-stop Toronto-Hong Kong flights, reflecting reduced market demand.

Daily, non-stop Vancouver-Hong Kong flights will continue.

Air Canada will continue to monitor this evolving situation closely in consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Transport Canada and Global Affairs and will adjust its schedule as appropriate.

Air Canada operates direct flights to Beijing and Shanghai from Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, and normally operates 14 weekly flights to Hong Kong, seven from Toronto and seven from Vancouver.

Flights to and from Taipei remain unaffected.
