CAAT’s director-general announced the extension on the agency’s webpage this morning. It is the third extension of the ban, which was first imposed back on April 3. He cited the need to maintain the measures to control the disease.

The ban was due to expire this Saturday. It’s now extended from this Sunday up to Thursday, April 30. Previous permissions for inbound passenger flights during the period are now revoked.

Exceptions to the ban are repatriation flights, state and military aircraft, aircraft making emergency landings and aircraft making technical landings without disembarkation.
