The Civil Aviation Administration of China, to avoid the spread of coronavirus through aircraft, has taken a series of measures, including stepping up the ventilation and disinfection in aircraft and airports, checking the body temperature of departing and arriving passengers, strengthening the personal protection and health management of front-line personnel, including crew members and security check personnel and issuing prevention and control guidance for airlines and airports. In view of the epidemic spread in some countries and regions, CAAC has developed different measures for different regions and at different levels, in a bid to prevent and control the epidemic. Regarding Chinese citizens stranded abroad, CAAC has developed an international flight plan coordination mechanism which is intended to coordinate the weekly flight planning by Chinese and foreign airlines. The flight plans will be issued regularly to provide necessary support for the transport of Chinese and foreign passengers and supplies.
