Coronavirus: Complete list of all airlines which have suspend flights to China

The list of airlines putting services to China on-hold is growing by the day. Now every major airline in the world, including Air New Zealand has suspended at least some of their flights to China, home of more than 1.3 billion people.

Last week, Cathay Pacific reduced its services between Auckland and Hong Kong by around 37 percent, this reduction means the airline will operate just one service per day and on some days, none at all.
