CZ3072 (Saturday 15 February, the 0920 hours SYD up to SZX) has been cancelled.

Mainland Chinese airlines' responses to coronavirus vary, but not all are cancelling every flight. Overall there is however a huge reduction in the number of seats between Oz and mainland China.

Most mainland Chinese airlines have drastically reduced their flight frequencies but on Monday 23 March, CZ344 is one flight still operating. It took off in MEL at 1245 hours, 80 minutes after timetabled pushback so likely arrival has become 1853 hours, 48 minutes behind.

CZ322, the 2230 hours Monday 25 May 2220 hours MEL up to CAN has been cancelled. However, 12 hours and 10 minutes earloier today, CZ322 operated on the same roue, taking off at 1026 hours with A333 B-5940.

There were a total of 10 international flights departing MEL today that operated (or will do so late tonight). I can't recall what the 'usual' total (pre-COVID-19) was but I'm guessing around 30 to 40 on many Mondays.

On Wednesday 1 July 2020, CZ326, the coronavirus pandemic 1005 hours SYD - CAN has been cancelled, as has a second CZ flight, 302 at 2145 tonight. Three others of the remaining nine international flights today have also got the flick. This is unusual: on many days recently, SYD has been down to about four international departures a day.

During coronavirus on Sunday 5 July 2020, CZ302, a mid evening 2145 hours SYD - CAN has been cancelled.

The NSW Government is imposing 50 passenger per flight limits on inbounds while there is an overall limit of 450 passengers a day into international SYD arrivals, so that may be the reason behind cancellations such as this.
