Lufthansa Cargo has updated its China flight timetable on account of the coronavirus outbreak that began in China.
In a statement on February 4, 2020, Lufthansa Group said: “The passenger airlines of the Lufthansa Group have suspended their flights to and from China (mainland without Hong Kong) until 29 February 2020. Nanjing, Shenyang and Qingdao will not be served by passenger aircraft until the end of the winter timetable on 28 March 2020.
“Accordingly, the belly capacities of these flights are not available for air cargo. However, flights to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKG) will continue to operate as scheduled.
“Lufthansa Cargo plans to maintain connections to and from mainland China with cargo aircraft as long as possible.”
A special flight schedule comprising five flights a week is currently in operation. This corresponds to one third of the normal winter flight schedule. In detail, Shanghai (PVG) shall be served three times a week, Beijing (PEK) and Chengdu (CTU) once a week each. Freighter flights to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKG) will continue to operate according to schedule.
