In the face of the coronavirus outbreak, SWISS International Airlines has extended its flight suspension to China and added Iran and Italy to the list of countries with no or limited service. SWISS announced that for the safety of passengers and flight crew it was further suspending flights to and from Beijing and Shanghai until April 24th. This follows the announcement in February that the suspension on flights to Mainland China would be suspended until March 28. This was a decision taken by the parent company, Lufthansa Group, and applies to several airlines including Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines. The Lufthansa Group also suspended flights from Munich to Hong Kong between March 6th and April 24th. Some connections are also cancelled on the routes from Frankfurt and Munich to Seoul. New restrictions have also been put in place for other destinations that have seen an outbreak of Covid-19 infections in the last couple of weeks. Connections to Tehran have been suspended until April 30th, according to Keystone-SDA.
