Cathay Pacific is suspending numerous international routes until March 28, as authorities continue to attempt to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

There will be no flights to London Gatwick, Rome, Washington DC, Newark, Male, Davao, Clark, Jeju and Taichung during this period.

Routes to all cities in mainland China, excluding Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu and Xiamen, will also be suspended.

The full list can be viewed here, along with information on rebookings and refunds.

Earlier this week, Cathay staff were asked to take three weeks of unpaid leave amid falling demand.

The airline will reduce capacity by around 30 per cent across its network over the next two months.

The South China Morning Post today revealed that from midnight Friday, Hong Kong International Airport will segregate all mainland China flights from other international services.

Aircraft will arrive and depart at remote parking stands, from which passengers will be taken for a medical screening followed by 14 days of quarantine, enforced by spot checks. Those refusing quarantine, excluding aircraft crew, will be sent back to the mainland.

Carriers around the world are cutting or suspending flights in response to the outbreak.

In the UK, Virgin Atlantic has suspended its Shanghai-Heathrow route until March 28, while British Airways has suspended all flights to and from Beijing and Shanghai until February 29.

Virgin Australia has cancelled its Sydney-Hong Kong service from March 2, blaming a decline in market demand.

It had already planned to end its Melbourne-Hong Kong service from February 11, leaving the carrier with no flights to Hong Kong.
