British Airways has temporarily suspended flights to and from Italy in response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The airline has so far said in a statement:
“In light of the Italian government’s announcement and the UK government’s official travel advice, we have contacted all customers who are due to travel today (10 March).”
It told Business Traveller:
“This is a fast moving situation, and we recommend all customers check for the latest on their flight on ba.com.”
Travellers with flights to or from Italy booked until April 4 can rebook to a later date until the end of May, move their destination to Geneva or Zurich, or claim a full refund.
It has also halted flights to Tel Aviv and Eilat due to the implementation of a 14-day quarantine period for all passengers arriving in Israel.
Meanwhile Norwegian Air has temporarily halted flights to and from Italy, Reuters reports.
Its flight from New York to Rome was cancelled on Monday, and flights between Oslo and Rome will not fly on Tuesday.
