Several airlines suspends flights to Taiwan amid COVID-19 pandemic

More airlines have decided to suspend flights serving Taiwan amid plummeting demand and increasingly tight border controls set by governments around the world, including Taiwan's, to keep the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at bay.

Thai AirAsia said Saturday it will cancel all international flights from March 25 to April 25 and the Taoyuan-Chiang Mai route between Taiwan and Thailand.

Jetstar Asia Airways said it will suspend all flights between March 23 and April 15, and Malindo Air said its Taoyuan-Kuala Lumpur flights will be canceled between March 19 and April 30.

Taiwan's government decided earlier this week to bar most foreign nationals from entering Taiwan starting March 19.

That and similar border controls elsewhere have further blunted demand for air travel in an already depressed industry, forcing airlines to cut back on flights across the region.
