The airline that flew Jordan’s Jordan Airline flight to Dubai on Tuesday will suspend its operations in Dubai due to a new virus.
Jordan Airlines said the flight was canceled because of a new strain of coronavirus that has struck the airline.
The airline said it is working with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) to find out the root cause of the illness and what steps can be taken to avoid future travel.
Jordan Airline said it plans to fly from Abu Dhabi to Dubai in early December.
The new coronavillosis strain, which has struck airline flights in the past, is believed to have originated in Africa and is believed be responsible for the death of more than 10,000 people since its first outbreak in December.
According to the airline, the strain is circulating in the airways of at least 50 countries.
The latest outbreak was first reported on November 11.
The company said it will suspend flights in Dubai to prevent passengers from being exposed to the virus.
“As a result, our employees will not be able to take any further work duties during the shutdown period,” Jordan Airlines said in a statement on Wednesday.
It is not clear when the airline will resume flights.
