United will extend its suspension on flights to Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai and Hong Kong until April 24 in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak that originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
United said it will continue to monitor the situation and will evaluate it schedule as it remains “in close contact” with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health experts around the globe.
Earlier this month, United announced the suspension of its Hong Kong flights between February 8 and February 20 due to a “continued drop in demand”, after it had cancelled flights to mainland China because of the coronavirus outbreak.
This follows American Airlines’ decision on Wednesday to further extend the cancellation of its mainland China and Hong Kong service until late April.
