Emirates Airlines reversed an earlier decision to suspend all passenger flights, which was supposed to take effect from March 25.

The Gulf carrier said it had “received requests from government and customers to support the repatriation of travellers.”

It will continue to fly to Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States. This is greatly reduced from its usual 159 destinations.

Singapore Airlines has announced it will cut capacity by 96 per cent to end April, previously planned at 50 per cent.

Jetstar Asia will be grounding its entire fleet from March 23 to April 15.

Quick changes across the globe are expected, demonstrating the uncertainty that is gripping the industry.
