After thoroughly evaluating all currently available information on the coronavirus, Lufthansa Group has decided to suspend its Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian Airlines flights to/from mainland China until 9 February with immediate effect. In addition, acceptance of bookings for flights to/from (mainland) China has been suspended until the end of February. Flight operations to/from Hong Kong will continue as planned. The Lufthansa Group will continuously monitor the situation of the corona virus and is in contact with the responsible authorities.

Lufthansa, SWISS and Austrian
Airlines will fly to their respective destinations in mainland China one more
time. This is intended to give our guests the opportunity to take their planned
flight and our crews to return to Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Affected passengers holding a
ticket issued before/on 23 January for a flight to/from mainland China between
24 January and 29 February, have the possibility to rebook once free of charge
to a flight on the original route or to cancel the trip. This applies to
passengers with a ticket issued by Lufthansa, SWISS or Austrian Airlines and
flights with an LH, LX, or OS flight number. The new journey has to take place
at the latest by 30 September 2020.

of 54 regular weekly connections from Germany, Switzerland and Austria to the
