MANILA, Philippines — The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has maintained normal inbound and outbound flights to several places in mainland China.
This, despite the move of other countries to cancel flights to and from China following the 2019-nCoV scare.
The countries that either canceled or cut the number of flights to and from China include Canada, India, United States, South Korea, Australia, United Kingdom, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, France, and Singapore.
And although the Philippines is implementing an indefinite suspension of direct flights to and from Wuhan City, in Hubei province which is the epicenter of the novel coronavirus, the country will still maintain regular flights in other areas of China.
This includes flights to and from Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, Jinjiang, Hongkong, and Guangzhou City which is around 1,000 kilometers away from Wuhan City.
The country, meanwhile, will continue implementing heightened security protocol in airlines and airports to prevent contamination from and spread of the 2019-nCoV. — (with details from Asher Cadapan, Jr.) /mbmf
