Airlines still flying in to China mainland

I had earlier posted an article about airlines across the board that have stopped flying in to China due to Coronavirus fears. I went to Kayak and did some research to identify

The parameters I used were

  1. Airports – All Shanghai(24 million population), All Beijing (19 Million population), All Tianjin (13 Million People), All Wuhan (11 million population)
  2. From – NewYork JFK and Newark – EWR
  3. Dates – Sunday – 2/2 to Saturday – 2/22
  4. Number of Passengers – 1

To Shanghai from JFK/EWR

As you will find below there are 946 serving this round trip flight at this point for travel between JFK/EWR to Shanghai airports starting 2/2 and coming back on 2/22. The airlines still serving this route are:

Trip from JFK to Beijing China Coronavirus impact update

To Wuhan from JFK/EWR

As you will find below there are 0 flights serving this round trip at this point for travel between JFK/EWR toWuhan airport starting 2/2 and coming back on 2/22. Wuhan was one of the first cities to be quarantined and it is apparent in our search that there are no flights currently being served to Wuhan.

We searched a few more cities some completely quarantined and others only partially and it appears that even after Coronavirus has been declared as an emergency – there are airlines that are still flying within the mainland very possibly transporting the virus across the nation as well as going in and out of the mainland to other countries lugging Coronavirus along with them. When will this stop? When will we be brave enough to cut off all travel to truly restrict the spread – or is it too late considering that the Coronavirus has already spread and made it’s presence known in over 15 other countries? Take a look at our Coronavirus impact map to visualize this.

    Any updates? Who’s flying currently? I’m going to need to go back soon

    1. Considerable numbers of airlines are flying in and out of Beijing and Shanghai. None of the airlines seem to be flying in to Wuhan as of now.
