Thai Airways to cancel two routes to Japan due to coronavirus

Thai Airways International (THAI) announced on Wednesday the company will stop its flights to Nagoya and Fukuoka in March and are reducing the size of their planes that are flying to popular Japanese destinations such as Haneda and Narita airports in Tokyo.

The airline cited the outbreak of the coronavirus as the cause for the changes as various countries are recommending their citizens avoid flying to destinations where the outbreak has occurred.

Japan has the highest number of confirmed cases outside of China with 621 cases although 542 cases were isolated on the cruise ship the Diamond Princess.

The aircraft changes to Narita and Haneda have begun though flight frequency remains the same.
