Japanese airline ANA said today that it will further reduce or suspend flights to and from select cities in mainland China starting February 20.
The following flights will be affected between February 20 and March 28:
- The NH979/980 Kansai-Beijing service will be reduced from daily to three times weekly (on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday).
- The daily NH969/970 Haneda-Shanghai Hongqiao service will be suspended.
- The NH927/928 Narita-Qingdao service will be reduced from daily to four times weekly (on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday).
- The NH903/904 Narita-Dalian service will be reduced from daily to four times weekly (on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday).
Earlier this month, the Japanese carrier announced that it would reduce or suspend flights to mainland China and Hong Kong. The airline said it will suspend its Kansai-Hong Kong service between February 17 and March 28.
In October last year, the carrier announced that the aircraft used on its Kansai-Hong Kong route would be downsized from a 202-seater Boeing 767-300ER to a 146-seater Airbus A320neo.
During the same period, ANA’s daily Hong Kong-Tokyo Narita and twice-daily Hong Kong-Tokyo Haneda service will remain normal.
