Germany's flagship carrier Lufthansa said Wednesday it was cancelling all its mainland China flights over the deadly coronavirus until February 9, including those run by subsidiaries Swiss and Austrian Airlines.
Each of the carriers will fly to their respective destinations in China "one last time" to give passengers and crew "the opportunity to return to Germany, Switzerland and Austria", the Lufthansa group -- one of Europe's largest airline companies -- said in a statement.
