U.S. airlines extend China flight cancellations into late April over COVID-19

United Airlines said late on Wednesday it will extend cancellations of all U.S. flights to China through late April due to the novel coronavirus epidemic.

With the announcement by Chicago-based United, all U.S. passenger carriers flying to China have now canceled flights into late April. Carriers say part of the reason is a dramatic drop-off in demand.

United said it was extending cancellations of flights to Hong Kong, which had been set to resume on Feb. 21, and for flights to mainland China, that had been set to resume on March 28. Flights will resume starting April 24.

United normally operates roughly 12 flights per day from the United States to mainland China and Hong Kong.
