SriLankan Airlines has joined the growing list of airlines to rationalise flights to China.

The decision has been taken as passenger demand to and from China to international destinations has decreased in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. 

Many airlines have already reduced frequencies to China due to the drop in demand, as the Chinese government imposes restrictions on overseas travel of its own citizens.

The airlines reductions are effective from now until 28th March 2020. 

SriLankan currently operates services to three cities in China, namely Beijing, Shanghai and Canton.
