Operations During the Coronavirus Outbreak 

NATA representatives have been monitoring the ongoing government provisions for aircraft operations affected by the Coronavirus outbreak, specifically those operations involving carrying passengers who have been in China. The situation is extremely dynamic, and operators are urged to review information from all sources to ensure awareness of the latest restrictions and provisions. Guidance that is available to date includes a bulletin published by the Carrier Liaison Program of US Customs and Border Protection (available here), a DHS document (available here), and a Presidential Proclamation (available here). The FAA also has a website that includes resources for carriers (available here). 

Note that passengers arriving from the impacted areas in China may be denied entry into the United States. 

Some exceptions are made for cargo flights and for operating and deadheading crew. 

CBP advises us that the most current information is likely to be available at a flight’s first Port of Entry and through CBP’s Regional Carrier Liaison Groups, listed below:
