Malaysia Airlines cancels over 4000 flights amid coronavirus outbreak

Published on : Saturday, March 21, 2020

Malaysia Airlines said that the airline company is reducing its overall network following the nationwide movement control order imposed by the Malaysian government until March 31 due to coronavirus outbreak. The Malaysian citizens are not allowed to leave the country, while those abroad are allowed to return but will be subject to medical screening procedures upon arrival and self-quarantine for 14 days.

 

 

The foreign nationals are not allowed to enter the country, but those in Malaysia are allowed to leave.

 

According to the airline, passengers on transit are allowed to head to their onward destinations, but they are subject to “current protocols”. The Malaysian national airline said it suspended flights to India from March 17 until March 31, and also cancelled flights to the Philippines between March 21 and March 31, following the two governments’ ban on travel to and from Malaysia.

 

According to India’s ministry of foreign affairs, travellers coming from Malaysia are now banned from entering India until March 31.

 

 

Philippines has also expanded its travel ban to all countries which have localised transmission of the viral disease. The Metropolitan Manila area is also placed under community quarantine until April 14.
