I got my trip to Japan tomorrow refunded. (Chinese aviation recent announcement. ) However it wouldn't include overseas airlines but many like Lufthansa and British airways are offering full refund.

As of Tuesday 28 Jan evening (UK time) the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is now advising citizens against "all but essential travel" to all of mainland China, in addition to "all travel" to Hubei.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Hubei Province due to the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak. If you’re in this area and able to leave, you should do so.

 

The FCO advise against all but essential travel to the rest of mainland China (not including Hong Kong and Macao). The Chinese government continue to impose further restrictions on movement within China in response to the coronavirus outbreak. It may become harder over the coming weeks for those who wish to leave China to do so. If you feel that you may want to leave China soon, you should consider making plans to do so before any further restrictions may be imposed.

This is a large part of why I decided to scoot out now instead of adopting a "wait and see" approach.

United Airlines has just announced that from February 1 to February 8 it will be suspending its services between the US and Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai.

 

That's 24 round-trips a week, and it's surprising Hong Kong is included. Americans who've booked their departure next week on UA are now in a difficult situation. This is going to earn the airline a lot of enmity.

 

EDIT: Apparently some United flights will continue in service. The 24 cancelled round-trips don't constitute all United's US-China flights.

BA also cancelled all flights to/from mainland China.

FinnAir,  the company we will (hopefully) be travelling with on Sunday, will cancel all flights to/from Beijing and Nanjing from February 5th. The stated reason is the amount of cancellations from Chinese travel groups (which means the flights would pretty much be empty).

 

Maybe UA and BA have similar a reason for stopping the flights.
