IATA is closely monitoring developments related to the Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan (China) and is actively engaged with the World Health Organization (WHO) Secretariat, ICAO and the US Centers for Disease Control.

WHO is advising measures to limit the risk of export or import of the disease, without unnecessary restrictions on international traffic. See WHO’s update from 24 January

Airlines are prepared to work with public health authorities when there are outbreaks of communicable diseases with well-developed standards and best practices.

IATA will provide further updates as appropriate.
