TOKYO -- All Nippon Airways will temporarily stop flying between Kansai International Airport in Osaka and China as the coronavirus outbreak eats into passenger traffic.

The ANA Holdings unit will suspend all seven round-trip flights per week between Osaka and Shanghai from March 2, along with all three between Osaka and Beijing from March 3, under plans announced Tuesday. Round-trip flights between the Tokyo area's Narita International Airport and Shanghai's Pudong International Airport will be halved to seven a week.
