Air Canada Suspends China Flights Through April 10

Air Canada is extending the suspension of its flights between Canada and Beijing and Shanghai until April 10.

Services to Beijing and Shanghai were initially suspended for the month of February following the Government of Canada’s January 29 advisory discouraging non-essential travel to China.

Air Canada says it 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.

The airline is also extending the suspension of its daily non-stop Toronto-Hong Kong flights until April 30, reflecting reduced market demand. The airline’s daily, non-stop Vancouver-Hong Kong flights will accommodate customers originally booked on its Toronto-Hong Kong flights.

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

Flights to and from Taipei remain unaffected.
