Taipei, March 21 (CNA) More airlines have decided to suspend flights serving Taiwan amid plummeting demand and increasingly tight border controls set by governments around the world, including Taiwan's, to keep the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at bay.

Thai AirAsia said Saturday it will cancel all international flights from March 25 to April 25, including the Taoyuan-Chiang Mai route between Taiwan and Thailand.

AirAsia said its Taoyuan-Sabah flights and Kaohsiung-Kuala Lumpur flights between Taiwan and Malaysia, as well as all long-haul flights starting with the code D7 will be canceled from March 19 to 31, while flights from Taoyuan to Nagoya in Japan will be canceled from March 19 to April 24.

Jetstar Asia Airways said it will suspend all flights between March 23 and April 15, and Malindo Air said its Taoyuan-Kuala Lumpur flights will be canceled between March 19 and April 30.
