The American airlines Delta Air Lines and American Airlines have also stopped their flights to China for the time being. Concerns about the spread of the new corona virus in that country prompted companies to take this measure. Delta was the first American airline to follow the example of KLM, Air France and British Airways, among others. American Airlines announced the same decision moments later.
Delta will fly to Chinese destinations until next Wednesday. A day later, the KLM cooperation partner ceases all flights to the Asian country until 30 April.
American Airlines, the largest airline in the United States, will immediately stop its flights to Beijing and Shanghai. These are expected to resume on March 27. There was a lot of fuss about the corona virus earlier this week at the company. Pilot trade union Allied Pilots Association (APA) went to court to force the group to stop its flights to China.
