Lufthansa announced on Friday it would extend the cancellation of all flights to mainland China until March 28 due to the coronavirus outbreak that hit several countries around the world, especially China.

The German aviation company said: "The Lufthansa Group has now decided to cancel the flights of Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines from/to Beijing and Shanghai until the end of the winter timetable on 28 March." The company also added that some Hong Kong flights would be canceled while Swiss will use smaller planes for flights to and from Hong Kong in March.
