Indian carriers suspend flights to Hong Kong

Indian carriers suspend flights to Hong Kong”

The missionaries in Hong Kong and Macau will be reassigned to other missions elsewhere in the world or, if they are near the end of their service time, will be released, according to a church news release.

During the 2003 severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, viral outbreak, airlines in Asia lost about $6 billion in revenue but demand for air travel to the region rebounded seven months after the crisis began, according to the International Air Transport Assn.

"In the days to come, China Eastern will pay close attention to the epidemic, and may further adjust the arrangements of flights", according to the notice.

On Friday, American Airlines suspended its flights to and from mainland China through March 27.

After the isolation or quarantine, if the missionaries show no signs of coronavirus, they will depart for their new assignments, the statement said.

The last United flight from the U.S.to Hong Kong will be on Wednesday, and the last flight eastbound from Hong Kong to the USA will be on Friday, the airline said.

A second coronavirus death outside of China was reported earlier Tuesday by Hong Kong as the number of cases surpasses 20,600 worldwide.

The United States has restricted passengers arriving from China to just 7 airports.

The church added that it is working to support church members and employees areas where the coronavirus is a concern and will make adjustments if needed.

United Airlines will cancel all flights to and from Hong Kong beginning February 8 until February 20 due to a "continued drop in demand".

In the USA, about 1,360 flights a month operate between US cities and China, with 556 of those routes operated by US carriers, according to OAG.

USA markets posted solid gains overnight, and we head into our trading day with building sentiment that investors don't want to be slow to get in on recovering share prices.

Many passengers will undergo enhanced screening while flying from the region.
