After working in close collaboration with the national and international health authorities since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, Air France says it has decided to suspend all scheduled flights to and from mainland China until February 9, 2020.

Starting today – Friday, January 31 – the airline is operating special flights to and from Shanghai and Beijing using volunteer crew members in order to permit customers and employees to return safely.

Air France had previously suspended its flights to and from Wuhan on January 22, and the suspension remains in effect until further notice.

Customers with a booking to or from China for departures on or before February 29, 2020, may change their flight until May 31, 2020, or request a refund, at no extra cost. Further details of the airline’s rebooking policy can be found at
