Caution Note: Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing economic situation, many airlines have restricted the number of flights they could offer. As with the broader travel industry, the outbreak has hurt air carriers financially. If you have already booked an airline ticket and are supposed to fly out soon, please get in touch with your airlines and local health authorities to know whether it is safe for you to fly, what the requirements are (e.g. face coverings), and what refund or rebooking options you are eligible for if your original flight gets cancelled or you decide to not go through with it.
