Air Canada Suspends Flights to Beijing and Shanghai
Air Canada said that following the Government of Canada’s Advisory to avoid non-essential travel to mainland China, it is temporarily suspending all direct flights to Beijing and Shanghai effective January 30, 2020 until February 29, 2020.

Air Canada’s last flights departing Canada will operate Jan. 29, 2020 and the return flights will operate from Beijing and Shanghai on Jan. 30, 2020. Affected customers will be notified and offered options, including travel on other carriers where available, or a full refund. Air Canada regrets this situation and apologizes for the serious disruption to our customers’ travel plans.

Air Canada 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 currently operates direct flights to Beijing and Shanghai from Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

Flights to and from Hong Kong and Taipei remain unaffected
