Passenger routes from several international carriers will be suspended for weeks in November after positive cases of COVID-19 were detected on their flights. The suspension order involves five international flights to Guangzhou.

The Guangzhou-based China Southern Airlines, one of the major airlines in China, has also announced the shift of all its Beijing based flights to Daxing International Airport from the new civil aviation season, which began on October 25.

The airline has increased flights between the capital and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. About 60 flights are planned every day between Beijing Daxing and Guangzhou, with a flight leaving Beijing Daxing for Guangdong's provincial capital every 30 minutes during peak hours, according to Hu Haiqing, deputy head of the airline's Beijing branch.
