In a move to curb the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus, China Airlines, along with its affiliates Tigerair Taiwan and Mandarin Airlines, have announced that they will stop offering inflight services on routes to Hong Kong and Macau.

Following the cancellation of flights to mainland China, the airlines will now suspend in-flight dining services, as well as the distribution of blankets, cushions, and newspapers to passengers on these flights.

These preventive measures are meant to limit the risk of infection by reducing unnecessary contact between the flight crew and passengers.

In place of hot meals, passengers will be served disposable paper lunch boxes or food inside paper bags. Meanwhile, hot beverages will only be offered if passengers bring their own Thermos flasks on board.

To boost overall cleanliness, the cabin interiors will be disinfected between flights, especially areas like fold-down trays, armrests, and overhead bins.
