United Airlines slashes international schedule by 95% for April

March 20 (Reuters) - United Airlines Holdings Inc said on Friday it would slash its international schedule by 95% for April because of government restrictions prohibiting travel in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

United will temporarily suspend all flights to Canada effective April 1 and will draw down its remaining trans-Atlantic, trans-Pacific and Mexico operations, the airline said in a statement.

The airline this week had announced a 60% reduction in domestic and international schedules for April, citing the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on travel demand. (Reporting by Rebekah Mathew in Bengaluru. Editing by Gerry Doyle)
