To further prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many major airlines have suspended, reduced, or cut flights to affected regions. Service is being slashed to/from high-risk areas and in markets where airlines are seeing drastic drops in demand, as well as places where government-imposed travel restrictions are in place. The following is a list of destinations and routes that are currently being halted during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Last Updated: March 27, 2020.

Which Flights Have Been Canceled Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Concerns?

Latest network updates from U.S. Airlines:

European Travel Ban to the U.S.A.

On March 11, 2020, a Presidential Proclamation was issued barring foreign nationals to enter the United States who have traveled in Europe's 26 Schengen Zone countries (Austria, Belgium, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland) in the last 14-days prior to their arrival in America. This rule took effect on midnight Friday, March 13, and will be instituted for 30-days. The United Kingdom and Ireland were added to this list on March 17, 2020.

Can U.S. Citizens Still Travel Back from or To Europe?

Yes. U.S. Citizens, legal residents, immediate family of U.S. citizens, and others identified in the proclamation, which can be viewed here, may still travel to/from Europe. However, exempt passengers traveling back from one of the listed countries after March 13, 2020, will be subjected to further screening at select airports. To read about a first-hand experience returning from a restricted region click here.

If I'm a U.S. Citizen/Resident and Return After March 13, 2020, What Happens?

U.S. passport holders returning from a European trip (after March 13) that included a visit to a Schengen Zone country (UK and Ireland after March 16, 2020) within the last 14-days will be required to enter the United States through one of these 13 CDC-approved airports for further screening prior to entry. If you're itinerary does not return to one of the listed airports, your airline should assist in rerouting the itinerary to do so.

Which U.S. Airports are CDC-Approved for Coronavirus Screenings?

  1. Atlanta (ATL)
  2. Boston (BOS) 
  3. Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW)
  4. Detroit (DTW)
  5. Newark (EWR)
  6. Honolulu (HNL)
  7. New York (JFK)
  8. Los Angeles (LAX)
  9. Miami (MIA)
  10. Chicago (ORD)
  11. Seattle (SEA)
  12. San Francisco (SFO)
  13. Washington DC (IAD)

Can Foreign Visitors Just Connect Through a Non-Schengen Airport to Avoid the Ban?

No. This proclamation is aimed toward any foreign nationals that have been in Europe's Schengen Area, the UK, or Ireland in the last 14-days before their arrival on U.S. soil. It's a matter of where you've recently been, not which country you are arriving from. Connecting via Asia, the Middle East, or any other region will not circumvent the order if you have visited a Schengen country, the UK, or Ireland in the last 14-days.

I have a European Passport Can I Still Visit the United States?

Yes. Only if you have not been in an affected Schengen area country, the UK, or Ireland over the last 14 days. For example, a French passport holder living in Canada may still travel to the United States as long as they have not been inside one of the banned countries two weeks prior to their arrival in America.

Will all Flights from the United States to Europe be Canceled?

Likely, no. This proclamation does not prohibit U.S. airlines from operating flights to/from Europe. But with already low yielding passenger loads and customers postponing or changing travel plans, many carriers will choose to cancel or reduce service. Routes affected will be listed below when they become available.
